Night Film, by Marisha Pessl, has been longlisted for the Francis Geffard prize for American Fiction, joining Richard Powers and Ryan Gattis amongst others. The winner will be announced at the end of November. Night Film has been the subject of a slew of fantastic press coverage recently in France, where it published in September 2015. Le Figaro called it “unparalleled, implacable, perfect” and Le Magazine Littéraire describes it as “impossible to resist”.
Night Film is a gorgeously written, spellbinding novel by the dazzlingly inventive Marisha Pessl, and will hold you in suspense until you turn the final page. Translation rights have been sold in 19 territories.
