"The Mystery of Henri Pick is so ridiculously French that if it started smoking Gitanes while you read it, you wouldn't be entirely surprised." -- The Sunday Times Culture magazine
"This book is light, funny and erudite: a delight." -- The Guardian "A charming literary caper... A playfully droll satire of the French publishing scene and a completely delightful jeu d'esprit." -- The Daily Mail "Written with humour, wit and intelligence, it's set in a world of books and publishing. I really enjoyed it." -- TripFiction "The Mystery of Henri Pick manages the great gap between levity and profundity, between humour and seriousness. A beautiful farce." -- Le Figaro Litteraire
