Small-town politics can be vicious
France's king of noir fiction ... he writes with a bleak, tragic beauty
Manchette throws a wrench into the workings of the main characters' lives and gleefully records the anarchy that results
A fist between the eyes, leaving the reader reeling ... so devastating it takes your breath away
Extraordinary ... Aimee is a glorious creation ... the tension and drama ramp up to a bloody and chaotic climax delivered in the same stark, bleak prose as the rest of the story ... That a story so shocking, funny, sad, smart and cool is delivered in only 91 pages is nothing short of a miracle. Uncompromising and utterly convincing, it's a macabre delight from start to finish.
[An] impressive and enjoyable dark farce
