Product Details


“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 
“The kind of violence for which crime fiction author Jean-Patrick Manchette had a propensity [is] the kind of violence that erupts onto a complacent peace like a bombarding invader and yet carries itself out with an almost choreographed agility. Manchette was a writer of urgency and cunning, of economy and laconic cool, and of narrative that verges on communiqué.” —Los Angeles Review of Books
“He was like an electroshock to the chloroformed country of literature and the French thriller.” —Jean-François Gérault
