A Private Note – Pascal Garnier

This was intended as a private note but I’ve decided to make it public since it might be of some interest to the readers of this blog.

Pascal Garnier, who died in March 2010 at aged sixty, was a talented novelist, short story writer, children’s author and painter. From his home in the mountains of the Ardèche, he wrote fiction in a noir palette with a cast of characters drawn from ordinary provincial life. Though his writing is often very dark in tone, it sparkles with quirkily beautiful imagery and dry wit. Garnier’s work has been likened to the great thriller writer, Georges Simenon. Gallic has published The Panda Theory, How’s the Pain?, The A26 and Moon in a Dead Eye, with The Front Seat Passenger which will soon be release and more to come in 2014.

According to Wikipedia his detective novels are marked by a wry humour.

The full list of his novels, if my information is accurate, comprises the following books:
