ENFIN LA NUIT (AND SO COMES THE NIGHT)
"The sky was ablaze. Many reasons had been put forth on television, tales of war, catastrophes, enemies, allies. Names, many names were being exchanged with little connection between them. Then suddenly people were out on the streets, all looking at the fire in the sky. The great fire. Havoc. Night-time was brighter than broad daylight. There was no need for streetlamps. The sky lit up on the 23rd January, at 10.30 pm on the dot. And if, at that moment, nobody really understood what was happening, it had to be accepted a week later that night would never fall again".
Night has disappeared. The earth is drying up and human beings are avoiding each other.
A cop, Thomas, and a teenager, Sophie, set off south together. Where to? Who cares, they are alive and they are on the move, in this blinding world where night has disappeared and the never ending daylight drives you crazy. Meanwhile, Thomas leaves a grave on a road junction and a house burnt to the ground behind him and gets to the border... In this spellbinding novel, part road movie and part post-apocalyptic experience, violence competes with black humour.
