What happened one misty morning in Somerset in the summer of 1975? And how do you write a successful and true novel?A global phenomenon, with rights sold in more than thirty countries, The Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair is a fast-paced, tightly plotted, cinematic literary thriller and an ingenious book within a book by a dazzling young writer.
