Seattle Times: "The murder in Amara Lakhous' wonderfully offbeat novel [...] is just an excuse to let Algiers-born Lakhous portray a vibrant, multiethnic neighborhood through the voices of characters being interviewed about the death."

What's new in crime fiction

The murder in Amara Lakhous' wonderfully offbeat "Clash of Civilizations Over an Elevator in Piazza Vittorio" (Europa, 129 pp., $14.95 paper, translated by Ann Goldstein) is almost beside the point.

Someone killed the scourge of an apartment building in Rome's Piazza Vittorio. But the murder's just an excuse to let Algiers-born Lakhous portray a vibrant, multiethnic neighborhood through the voices of characters being interviewed about the death.
