Good news to share


Dear friends and colleagues,

In the current context, more than ever, we want the books we print and our work as a publisher to be full of meaning. Our books might be fiction but they speak of freedom and teach us to trust in humankind.

Here are some pieces of news worth celebrating.

Should you wish to receive any of these books, please do not hesitate to let me know.

With all good wishes,

Maylis Vauterin


New release : « Le cœur du Pélican » by Cécile Coulon. Rocky meets Forrest Gump !


10 days after its publication, this nvel has already entered the French bestseller’s list.
We have a first German offer in our hands.

The text has been warmly praised as ”a delicate, cruel and physical novel ” (Lire), highlighting “the pleasure, which it seems is innate in her, in telling stories ; the relaxed stride of those who trust in their imagination to invent entire lives” (Livres Hebdo).

Take an impeccable, punchy style, and a main character who is both engaging and repelling but so human that you cannot help but identify with him. Mix these ingredients with rage and courage, and you have The heart of the Pelican : a wonderful tale by one of the most gifted French authors of her generation.

« The Archangel of chaos » by Dominique Sylvain :
deep into the Gehenna of your worst nightmares !


German rights sold to Piper Verlag in Germany before publication !

The martyred body of a nurse is found in a warehouse : the victim has been chained up and tortured to death, and her tongue torn out. But the killer has carefully prepared and laid out the body ante-mortem. The torturer’s obsessive profile suggests he will not stop there… A woman, Franka Kehlmann, is investigating within the very masculine Commandant Carat’s section. She will have to prove herself in the field.

In its pre-publication review, the Figaro Littéraire underlined : “a suffocating rhythm, sentences like lasers […]. It is not intrigue which makes this a good story. No, the atmosphere, the relations between colleagues, the humanity, and the errors in the investigation reveal something else altogether more thrilling […]. It only remains to be said that The Archangel of Chaos, despite the darkness surrounding the case, successfully slips in a lot of tenderness and some poetry”.
