Fiction Book of the Month: The Reader on the 6.27

Posted on 29th Apr, 2016 by Peter Whitehead & Martha Greengrass

Jean-Paul Didierlaurent’s The Reader on the 6.27 has been something of a sensation in its native France, topping the bestseller charts and very much underlining Didierlaurent’s transition as a short-story writer of some repute toward transforming into a full-blown novelist. The Reader on the 6.27 has bagged numerous literary awards and has been translated into twenty-six languages. Here, Didierlaurent talks about moving away from the form of the short tale and how he set about creating the extraordinary world of The Reader on the 6.27. Introduced by regional buyer Martha Greengrass
