Daas has described herself as an "intersectional feminist" and this book captures the term in all of its complexity. After all, being a gay French Muslim woman involves so many different overlapping perspectives that are so entirely at odds with the cis-white-secular/Catholic world of France that it is no wonder that Daas felt the need to write it all out.

Mbougar Sarr’s talent is mindblowing and enlightens each and every page of this astonishing, multifaceted novel who claims J.L. Borges, Yambo Ouologuem and Roberto Bolano as his sources of inspiration. If the expression “writer of the world” means anything, then Mbougar Sarr is -- unarguably-- one of its most talented and fierce figures.

It's in the pages of Marcel Proust's The Fugitive that Violaine Huisman found the French title of her debut novel. “Every woman feels that the greater her power over a man, the more impossible it is to leave him except by sudden flight: a fugitive precisely because a queen.”

In this panoramic portrait of Paris in the late-nineteenth century, the wildly gifted debut author Victoria Mas provides us with an entirely unique perspective on the city by portraying it through the lens of the women incarcerated in the notorious asylum l'Hospice de la Salpetriere. My top choice from this years rentree litteraire!

Like any account of a successful utopia, Les Étoiles les plus filantes takes us along on an exhilarating adventure and invites us to reflect on the power of great stories – stories where heroes rise above their own condition to break glass ceilings.

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.

If you've never read anything by Christine Angot, read Le Voyage dans l’Est. And if you’ve already read her previous books, read Le Voyage dans l’Est. Don’t miss out on maybe the greatest work of fiction published this season.
