Blurb

The "mesmerizing" (Booklist), Prix Goncourt-winning novel. Hailed as "vivid and entertaining" by the New York Times Book Review, this Goncourt Prize-winning new novel from the writer the Washington Post calls "the distinctive voice of his generation" and "the master magician of the contemporary French novel," was an immediate bestseller in France and, in this new paperback edition, stands to bring French phenomenon Jean Echenoz to a whole new American readership. The deceptively simple tale of a Parisian art dealer who abandons his wife and career to pursue a memorably pathetic international crime caper, I'm Gone combines, according to Publishers Weekly, "the offhand wit of Raymond Chandler with the narrative agility of Peter Hoeg," creating en route what Library Journal calls "a sly send-up of contemporary art and life."
