Winner of France’s prestigious Goncourt Prize and runaway international bestseller, I’m Gone, has been hailed as mesmerizing by Booklist and crisp and erudite by the wall Street Journal. For anyone who has yet to discover Echenoz’s distinctive literary talents, I’m gone serves as ideal introduction to his sly wit, unique voice, colourful imagination, and fanciful manipulation of narrative convention. I’m gone is nothing less than a man against nature tale, heist caper, art world satire, and love story-all rolled into one deliriously entertaining novel.
The most distinctive voice of his generation and the master magician of the contemporary French novel.
- The Washington Post
I’m Gone combines the policier, the cultural essay and the urban sex novel to create a vivid, entertaining, hybrid-The New York Times Book Review
With a wink and a nod and an easy mastery of style, Echenoz all but tells us outright not to take any of this too seriously – to enjoy I’m Gone in the same devil-may-care spirit in which it is offered.
-Boston Sunday Globe
A mordantly humorous work.
