San Francisco Chronicle: “The book is perfectly paced, darkly humorous and an excellent window into the turmoil and emerging politics of postwar France.”

Date: Sep 17 2015

Recommendations of recent books from the staffs of a rotating list of Bay Area independent bookstores. This week’s list is from Books Inc., Castro:

The Red Collar, by Jean Christophe Rufin: Shortly after World War I, war hero Jacques Morlac is the only prisoner in a French jail, and his mysterious offense and motives behind the crime slowly unravel while a dog’s incessant barking outside the prison adds to the tension. The book is perfectly paced, darkly humorous and an excellent window into the turmoil and emerging politics of postwar France.
