LITERARY FICTION

Roman has just got a job on the Paris-Venice, the night train with the most delays in Europe. It’s a sign. His life is running behind schedule too. At almost 30, getting this job as a steward, is like a confirmation…

With illegal immigrants, drunken customs officers and pickpockets descending to plunder the wagon once the passengers are asleep, it’s a moving theatre where anything can happen. Even falling in love.

Florent Oiseau, 27 years old, has been a gas station worker, unemployed, barman, dishwasher, night receptionist, bread factory worker, crepe maker, and a sleeper steward on the Paris-Venice night train. His first novel Showing Up (Je vais m’y mettre, Allary Éditions, 2016) was praised as one of the funniest books of the year.
