Praise for Palafox:
"Beautiful. . . . Very amusing. . . . Chevillard takes real narrative risks. . . . A must for anyone interested in anti-realist fiction."Rain Taxi Review of Books
The characters in Prehistoric Times remind us of the inhabitants of Samuel Beckett's world: dreamers who in their savage and deductive folly try to modify reality. In an entirely original voicefull of burlesque variations, accelerations, and rupturesEric Chevillard asks luminous and playful questions about who we really are.
Winner of the 2003 Prix Wepler for Le Vaillant petit tailleur, Eric Chevillard is one of the most inventive authors writing in French today. He is also the author of On the Ceiling, The Crab Nebula, and Demolishing Nisard.
