A NovelBook - 1997
Two by Carrere brings together the greatest works of Emmanuel Carrere, "the Stephen King of France" (Mirabella), two novels that are at once gripping suspense stories and laser probes into the modern psyche.
In Class Trip, little Nicolas embarks on an ill-fated overnight excursion. Prone to lurid imaginings of kidnappings and organ thefts, Nicolas watches his fantasies grow horrifyingly real when a local child disappears. Nicolas takes it upon himself to investigate, fearlessly playing detective -- until he uncovers the devastating truth. Dramatic, taut with intensity, Carrere's depictions of the terrifying anxieties and shifting realities of modern life are marvels of concentrated emotion.
