Meetings, partings, loves and losses in rural France are dissected with compassion.
The late wedding guest isn’t your cousin but a drunken chancer.
The driver who gives you a lift isn’t going anywhere but off the road.
Snow settles on your car in the middle of summer and the glitter found between the pages of a borrowed novel takes you into another world.
Pagano’s stories weave together the mad, the mysterious and the dispossessed in rural France with honesty and humour.
This is a superb cumulative collection from a unique French voice.Tweet
