 Synopsis  Reviews  Information
Eric Chevillard is a bright new talent in the French literary scene. His style, with its burlesque variations, accelerations and ruptures, takes the reader into a frightening and jubilatory delirium. In Prehistoric Times, Chevillard's characters are reminiscent of the inhabitants of Beckett's world: dreamers who in their savage and deductive folly try to modify reality. In an entirely original voice, Chevillard asks looming, luminous questions about who we really are.
