Fairy Gunmother Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

A policeman on a mission of mercy is shot dead at point-blank range by a sweet old granny on a frosty morning.

The neighbourhood, Paris's bubbling Belleville quarter, is already in uproar because half a dozen other grannies have been found with their shrivelled throats slit.

Into this tense situation stumbles Benjamin Malaussene with an overly complicated life that includes his voluptuous red-haired girlfriend, Julie, and his smelly epileptic dog, Julius.

Maniacally inventive - some have called it deranged - Pennac's creations in The Fairy Gunmother have achieved cult status all over Europe.
