The Stone Boy - Sophie Loubière

50 Women Novelists in a Row: Book 12!


another book I would never have known existed, except for the “recommended reading” guide called Euro Noir...which, in my opinion, isn’t as formatted for easy use as its companion, Brit Noir. I won’t go into the differences between the two books, but it’s easier, with the way Brit Noir is set up, to flip to a page and spot titles of recommended novels by the authors showcased. but I have learned to love Euro Noir anyway, because it puts me onto so many authors I have never heard of, with more and more of them getting translated into English.


meanwhile, The Stone Boy sounds wonderful; an elderly woman becomes concerned for the health and welfare of a small boy...while people around her, and him(?), are bent on convincing her he doesn’t really exist.
