With writing that transports you to the heart of Paris, this erotic and elegiac, funny and romantic story confirms Dyer as one of Britain's most original and talented writers.

Paris Trance : A Romance Synopsis

'People talk about love at first sight, about the way that men and women fall for each other immediately, but there is also such a thing as friendship at first sight.' In Paris, two couples form an intimacy that will change their lives forever. As they discover the clubs and cafes of the eleventh arrondissement, the four become inseparable, united by deeply held convictions about dating strategies, tunnelling in P.O.W. films and, crucially, the role of the Styrofoam cup in American thrillers. Experiencing the exhilarating highs of Ecstasy and sex, they reach a peak of rapture - but the come-down is unexpected and devastating. Dyer fixes a dream of happiness - and its aftermath.

Paris Trance : A Romance Press Reviews

Sexy, hopelessly romantic and almost sneakily meditative, Dyer's novel invokes the shades of Hemingway and Fitzgerald, but as they might be imagined by Truffaut. - New Yorker
