I'm Gone

Winner of Frances prestigious Prix Goncourt and a runaway bestseller, Jean Echenozs Im Gone is the ideal introduction to the sly wit, unique voice, and colorful imagination of the master magician of the contemporary French novel (The Washington Post). Nothing less than a heist caper, an Arctic adventure story, a biting satire of the art world, and a meditation on love and lust and middle age all rolled into one fast-paced, unpredictable, and deliriously entertaining novel, Im Gone tells the story of an urbane art and antiques dealer who abandons his wife and career to pursue a memorably pathetic international crime spree.Crisp and erudite (The Wall Street Journal), seductive and delicately ironic (The Economist), and with an unexpected sting in its tail, Im Gonetranslated by Mark Polizzottiis a dazzling, postmodern subversion of narrative conventions and an amused look at the absurdities of modern life. With a wink and a nod and a keen eye for the droll detail, Echenoz invites the reader to enjoy Im Gone in the same devil-may-care spirit in which it is offered (The Boston Sunday Globe).
