Product Details

Praise

Nada . . . is about as far as crime fiction gets from the cosy confines of the Anglophone whodunnit.” —Oscar Mardell, 3:AM Magazine

“As always, [Manchette] deftly keeps generalizations at bay and crafts a novel that exposes, critiques, but, most importantly, entertains. . . . The lasting impact of Nada, and of all Manchette novels, owes to the author’s skill at portraying the assault of the political on the personal, without ever making it explicit.” —Tom Roberge, Los Angeles Review of Books

“Writing so dark it gives a new meaning to the word noir.” —Frederick Méziès

“Post Manchette, crime fiction in France acquired a stamp and a tone that turned it once more into an invasion of the everyday, a belligerent raid on appearances, a violent revolution in a genre hitherto guilty of complacency but now startlingly chilling. And Nada is unarguably Manchette’s masterpiece.” —Paco Ignacio Taibo II 
 
“[Manchette] was like an electroshock to the chloroformed country of literature and the French thriller.” —Jean-François Gérault
