À défaut de pouvoir se détériorer, mes rapports s’étaient considérablement distendus avec ma famille. Or, cet été-là, ma cousine se mariait. J’allais donc revenir à Saint-Fourneau. Et les revoir. Tous. Enfin, ceux qui restaient.
Mais soyons honnête, le problème n’était pas là.

Deutsche Rezension aus HansBlog.de:

Meisterlich, doch zu aufdringlich beschwört Vincent Almendros Vernachlässigung und Verfall: Der heruntergekommene, fast verlassene Weiler; das muffige alte Haus; der Unrat; der feuchte Waldboden; die toten Tiere und die todgeweihten Menschen. Dazu kommen kurze, spannungsgeladene Dialoge.

'Faire mouche' translates literally as 'to make the fly', but a colloquial translation would be 'to hit the bulls-eye'. In this atmospheric French novella, the title makes very little sense until the last few pages when suddenly 'the problem' alluded to in the synopsis is revealed. Faire Mouche is a mystery story, but one in which we don't even really know what the mystery is for much of the time - and I don't think that's was because of my s
