Abel Quentin perfectly sets the comical and burlesque tone of Le Voyant d'Etamoes, and Roscoff’s series of misadventures leave the reader howling with laughter. Many have compared it to Philip Roth’s The Humain Stain. Yet, Le Voyant d’Etampe is written in a particularly French fashion that is reminiscent of François Weyergans' novels.

Written by six people, Boulevard de Yougoslavie discusses the renovation of a neighborhood in Rennes. The unusual thing at play is that everyone who lives there has something to say about it.

Since the annual Films on the Green series of outdoor screenings has just kicked off in New York City, starting with Claude Pinoteau’s La Boum, today’s literary staff pick will be dedicated to our screens.  Here is a book on everything else but books - an essay on pop culture, mainstream media and the norms they transmit.
