Le Mystère Henri Pick


Crozon is a small town in the west of Brittany - the local librarian, a solitary and strange guy, inspired by Richard Brautigan, creates a library of rejected manuscripts. And the library is performing well. A few years later, a young publishing editor finds a literary gem written by Henri Pick, a local pizza maker, who died a few years before. As they explore his past, they discover that nothing in his life suggests that he ever wrote a single line except for shopping lists. But his work is there, and it is slowly becoming the hit of the year, a book that changes substantially the lives of many, including Pick's family members, numerous readers, and the literary community...
