Hi,

I've come here from reading your comment in litlove's blog. I'm glad to read about a review on Philippe Claudel's work. It may be difficult to find his books here in Canada, but I absolutely love his film "I've Loved You So Long", with the brilliant Kristin Scott Thomas. He sure has shown what you've said here:"... humanity is at the heart of what he does." It remains one of my all time favourite films. Thanks for your post here, I must look harder to find Claudel's books.

You're welcome, Arti!
On the subject of the film of "I've Loved You So Long", Philippe Claudel said it was influenced, as is a lot of his work, by the many creative writing courses he's taught in prisons - interesting background.
