Exquisite Corpse

Pénélope Bagieu; Alexis Siegel (translator)

First Second Books, May 2015

Zoe isn't exactly the intellectual type, which is why she doesn't recognize world­famous author Thomas Rocher when she stumbles into his apartment... and into his life. It's also why she doesn't know that Rocher is supposed to be dead.

Turns out, Rocher faked his death years ago to escape his critics, and has been making a killing releasing his new work as "lost manuscripts," in cahoots with his editor/ex­ wife Agathe. Neither of them would have invited a crass party girl like Zoe into their literary conspiracy of two, but now that she's there anyway... well, as it turns out, both Thomas and Agathe think Zoe is awfully cute.

Zoe doesn't know Balzac from Batman, but she's going to have to wise up fast... because she's sitting on the literary scandal of the century!
