The book

A small boat, alone on the furious ocean. A family stranded on an island, battered by waves on all sides. A decision which looms, unavoidable, on the horizon.

When a volcano collapses in the ocean and generates a tidal wave of biblical proportions, the world disappears around Louie, his parents and his eight siblings. Their house, perched on a summit, stands firm. As far as the eye can see there is only silver water. It is shaken by violent storms, like jolts of rage.

A remarkable story of destruction, resilience, love, and the invisible but powerful links that bind a family together.

Praise for Sandrine Collette

Nothing but Dust has airs of Faulknerian tragedy in full Argentinian heat. A vicious circle of cruelty and redemption, written with complete austerity.”—Lire

“[Sandrine Collette] has the ability to lose herself in unknown, inhospitable lands and, as if by magic, to bring forth from them the harshest bitterness and the most firmly hidden beauty.”—L’Express

“A claustrophobic drama placed in a setting both hostile and sublime.”—Biblioteca Magazine
