Jean Daragane is a writer and a recluse. As he enters his third month without contact with another living soul he receives a telephone call from a man who claims to have found his old address book. Though suspicious of his manner, Daragane agrees to meet his mystery caller, one Gilles Ottolini, who introduces his female confederate as Chantal Grippay. Together they interrogate Daragane about the names in his notebook, names he cannot always place, and, most disturbing of all, a name he only knows from his latest novel. Shepherded by Ottolini and Grippay - their motives as opaque as ever - Daragane begins to sift through a waste of lost years. Memories resurface of a house on the outskirts of Paris, a childhood where strangers came and went in the night while he was watched over by a woman whose past appears to be as obscured as his own.

Book Description Quercus Publishing, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Jean Daragane, writer and recluse, has purposely built a life of seclusion away from the Parisian bustle. He doesn t see many people, he rarely goes out: he spends his life in a solitary world of his own making.His peace is shattered however, one hot September afternoon, by a threatening phone call from a complete stranger, who claims to have found Daragane s old phone book and wants to question him about a particular name it contains. But when Daragane agrees to meet the mysterious Gilles Ottolini, he realises that - try as he might - he cannot place the name Guy Torstel at all. Yet Ottolini is desperate for any information on this man.Finding himself suddenly entangled in the lives of Ottolini and his beautiful, but fragile young associate, Daragane is drawn into the mystery of a decades-old murder that will drag him out of his lonely apartment and force him to confront the memory of a long-suppressed personal trauma.Imbued with nostalgia, subtlety, and its own unique poetry, this darkly mysterious novel weaves a spell that provokes as much as it entrances.
