Collection: Jean Lahougue

Jean Lahougue (1945– ) is an innovative French novelist whose experiments often combine nouveau roman techniques with the detective novel or Oulipian constraints. A lifelong Agatha Christie fan, he won (and refused) the Prix Médicis in 1980 for Comptine des Height, a puzzle-novel patterned on Ten Little Indians. Vacated Landscape is his first book to appear in English.
