Book Description

Oct. 13 2009 French Literature
When French mafioso Oscar Lux saved Clovis Baccara from killing himself, he became the boss and something of a mentor to Clovis. Twenty years later, it is no surprise that Clovis is named best man when Oscar decides to settle down and get out of the business. Fulfilling his role as second-hand man, Clovis is entrusted with the job of guarding Oscar's new bride when Oscar is taken into police custody for embezzlement and racketeering on the day after his wedding. Alone on his boss's honeymoon in Los Angeles with Oscar's incredibly attractive new wife, Clovis tries his hardest to adhere to the one rule he has given himself, the rule which gets harder to heed as each moment passes: do not touch.

Product Description

Review

"Part of Laurrent's talent lies in his ability to reinvent (or perhaps subvert) a commonplace theme by means of language as well as humor. Together they allow the author to maintain an ironic distance that aptly reflects the modern condition." -- Donald J. Dziekowicz

5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece Jan. 3 2009
By M. Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Probably the best book I have read in the last decade, beautifully written, compelling and original, makes the reader hang on every word.

Laurrent masterly depicts the desire of Clovis for Veronica, the wife of his mob boss, spinning the reader in a web of language written so elegantly that it rivals (maybe surpasses) Joyce. A prose novel with the profundity of poetry, this is a book I could (and will) read again and again. A must-read.
