Pompidou Posse

by Sarah Lotz

Pompidou Posse Synopsis

You're seventeen. One night, more or less by accident, you set fire to a garden shed. Naturally, you pack up and run off to Paris, certain you can make enough money off your art to get by. You're young, you're pretty, you're full of life, and you have your best friend in all the world by your side. What could possibly go wrong? Sarah Lotz's hilarious, heartbreaking first novel has only ever been published in South Africa - Hodder & Stoughton are proud to be brining it to a world-wide audience, newly edited and with an all-new cover.

Pompidou Posse Press Reviews

A raw, honest, and ultimately heart-breaking novel, for anyone who ever wondered what it was like to be down and out in Paris when you're young and vulnerable. It's devastatingly good. -- Lavie Tidhar, author of A MAN LIES DREAMING POMPIDOU POSSE is an exquisitely written story about a friendship on the edge. At turns, hilarious, heartwarming and shocking, Sarah Lotz brings to vivid life the gritty underbelly of Paris with such wit and empathy, you feel as if you have walked the streets alongside her. She is a writer at the top of her game, or any game -- Kim Curran, author of GLAZE Book of the Week. This thrilling read sees teen besties Vicki and Sage fleep to Paris after accidentally setting fire to a shed on their school grounds. But life on the streets of the city of love isn't quite what they expected - and nor is their friendship - as they do everything they can to survive. * New Magazine * With Pompidou Posse, Sarah Lotz has accomplished a tremendous feat--she has managed to craft a novel that is both uproariously funny and also heartbreakingly honest. An absolute must read. -- Jasmine Warga, author of MY HEART AND OTHER BLACK HOLES Vivid, dark and absorbing, Sarah Lotz is a fiction powerhouse. -- Sarah Pinborough, author of THE DEATH HOUSE Honest, spiky and very, very real, POMPIDOU POSSE will - like its characters - stay with you for a very long time. -- Maggie Harcourt, author of THE LAST SUMMER OF US A harrowing, yet darkly comedic, yarn that grabs you immediately and never lets go. * iAfrica * Sets a high standard - and not only for debut novels. It is funny, scary, thrilling, and wild. * Brainwavez * POMPIDOU POSSE is a heart-warming, touching and painfully funny book. It is a triumph of a debut novel and hopefully the first of many from this awesome new writer. * Something Wicked *
