June 2013 Debut of the Month.

Winner of the Prix Goncourt for Debut Fiction in 2011.

An award-winning bestseller first published in France with a truly unique perspective. Follow a grief-stricken father, after the sudden death of his son - through the son's eyes. This witty, wisdom-laden blurring of memoir and fiction is a remarkable book about life that, like The Diving-Bell and the Butterfly,  will be talked about and deserves to be read.
