Product Details


“Whether it’s exploring the effects of collaboration during the Nazi occupation, the absences of loved ones or the vulnerable nature of male intimacy, the literature Mortier creates greets its readers warmly, and has in turn been met with numerous esteemed awards in Europe. . . . With tenderness and skill, Mortier crafts assured novels brimming with quiet optimism despite their often somber subjects. To have them now translated and available in the United States all at once is a generous treat.” – Shelf Awareness on Marcel, My Fellow Skin and Shutterspeed

“A dream debut, staggering in its technical control, brimming with atmosphere, moving and witty, too, and with all that, a style completely his own.” – NRC Handelsblad

“Mortier shows himself to be an uninhibited virtuoso of language, he writes sharp dialogue and is unusually witty. An exceptional debut.” – de Volkskrant
