• In the Absence of Men is a short, bold and original novel which beautifully captures the romance and amorality of gilded youth. It is particularly notable for a totally convincing portrait of Proust

    Michael Arditti, The Independent
  • An astonishing love story, beautifully told.

    Time Out
  • Besson is brave to include Proust but his courage pays off: this is a beautiful, dreamily experimental novel unafraid of describing either joy or pain.
