FAILING PARIS is the story of a week in the life of Sabine Wilcox, the 19-year-old student who has left the stifling rural existence of the Southwest in exchange for a year in Paris. But the City of Lights offers her no refuge. With only one week to address a dire problem, Sabine's past and present painfully collide. Her life intertwines with two men who prove to be more, and less, than what they first appeared.
Nominated for the PEN/West Fiction prize, this is a first novel by a young master whose work must not be overlooked
