Books to read in May: Solange's choices

By Solange de La Page

We are launching a new regular column on FranceInLondon! Every month, Solange from Librairie La Page will give us her reading recommendations. Here is her May selection: 

Un dernier verre au bar sans nom, by Don Carpenter

The story of four young writers living in Northern California and Portland during the days of the early Beat generation, written by one of the most talented authors of that generation. Hope, love and friendship are among the ingredients of this ‘classic’ American page turner.

  • Un dernier verre au bar sans nom, by Don Carpenter, translated from US English by Céline Leroy. Editions Cambourakis.





Les fonds noirs, by Camille de Villeneuve

Bruno Casals is ready to fight to protect his empire from the sharks who want to destroy him. A story of men and heritage but as usual nothing is as simple as it looks. Sharp narration.

  • Les Fonds Noirs, by Camille de Villeneuve. L'Arpenteur. 







Le grand marin, by Catherine Poulain

A young French woman sets off for a season of fishing in Alaska. We follow the footsteps of this unusual woman through the author's brilliant writing. A must read. Melvile inspirational.

  • Le Grand Marin, by Catherine Poulain. Editions de l'Olivier.
