Product Details


“A neat little story, almost shockingly quickly presented – making it all the more effective – The Gravediggers’ Bread is a quick but satisfying read.” — Complete Review

” This is a true gem from the 1950s now available in English. Imagine James M. Cain: with a
touch of (literal!) ‘graveyard humor.'” — Popular Culture Association Recommended Reading List

Praise for Dard’s thrillers:
‘The French master of noir’ Observer
‘Disturbing from the outset with strong echoes of Dard’s hero Simenon’ Sunday Times Crime Club (star pick)
‘Spellbinding’ Wall Street Journal
‘Melancholy and atmospheric, with a twist worthy of Agatha Christie at her devious best… classic French noir’ Guardian
‘Alongside the Maigret novels of Georges Simenon there is a rich vein of period French crime still to be tapped. Frédéric Dard is a case in point’ Daily Mail
