9781901285581: Anthology of Apparitions

Claude is a fallen angel left over from the hedonistic 1970s nightclubbing scene in Paris and St Tropez, destroyed by the unsolved mystery of his sister Marina's disappearance. He has been unable to move on from the heady days of his past, and spends his time day-dreaming in a café, his only company ghostly appearances from his past, people and places from his restless youth spent living life on the edge. Now in his forties, unemployed and only just getting by in the world, Claude is paralyzed by regret at having stood idly by as Marina lost her way. Busy partying and procuring escorts for the rich and famous, he betrayed both her and his wife, choosing instead to live in a vacuum of love and regret.

Anthology of Apparitions (Anthologie des apparitions) is a tough novel, which deconstructs its characters to their bare bones and reveals the nothingness that lies beneath the surface glitter of materialism and vanity.

About the Author:

Simon Liberati (b. 1960) is a French journalist and writer. After graduating from the Sorbonne, he began his career writing for FHM, Grazia and 20Ans. In 2004, he published Anthology of Apparitions (Anthologie des apparitions), followed by Nada exist in 2007, L hyper Justine in 2009 (for which he won the 2009 Prix de Flore) and Jayne Mansfield 1967 in 2011.

Review:

"Fascinating, well written and rewardingly different from the countless novels about people you think you recognise or, worse, think you are. Anthology of Apparitions is a valuable and at times tender examination of an unenviable, alien soul." - Simon Baker, New Statesman
