“I read this novel in a period when I was questioning everything about my life and what I was doing here. Sartre had a way of expressing these feelings I was having and it helped to have it put into words. It’s a bit dark and depressing, but he’s an existentialist so I think in the end it gives you hope that maybe life isn’t exactly pointless.”
Set in a fictional French town.
