In the Solitude of Cotton Fields (1987) is an extraordinary duologue between two men who meet randomly on the street and who find themselves locked in a struggle between life and death; Quai Ouest and Sallinger are both set in North America and provide extraordinarily prescient insight into America's relationship with outsiders. The Night Before the Forests is a soul-searching monologue addressed to an unseen audience whose identity is never fully discovered, although it is constantly in question.

“A creator of a mythology of the underworld, a champion of the underdog and the lone wolf, and a pioneer of a wholly new style of dramatic writing”

The Times

“A classic of our time, who, since 1990, is the French author most performed abroad”
