Bird in a Cage

Written by Frédéric Dard | Translated by David Bellos | Pushkin Vertigo | April 16, 2016

30-year-old Albert returns to Paris after six years away, during which time his mother has passed away, to find himself entangled in a complicated case centred around a woman he met at a restaurant whose husband’s body appears in her lounge, but then disappears almost inexplicably.

“With their tight plots, the stories are particularly cinematic, and fi lm-makers are already showing interest. Dard also wrote screenplays and plays. Their revival could be just around the corner.” — The Observer
