Editors need money and it is a true imposture to present this novel as the new Paasilinna. In fact this book just translated in french has been edited in 1994. I am a Paasilinna's fan but it is not a good one. It is a little story where we can see th ...more

Glenn Russell Hello Philippe,
Hope you are doing well and engaged in much art and literature for the upcoming week.

Say, just wanted to let you know I am reading The Royal Way, which I find to be such an absorbing novel. What surprises me is he wrote it at age 29. Now that's talent!
