The Appearance Of The Deer (L’apparition du chevreuil)



Original Language: French | 144 pp. | October 2019

2 Seas Represents: Dutch, Nordic and North American rights.


After receiving threats on social media, a writer takes shelter in the woods. There, instead of the peace she was longing for, she finds herself haunted by her troubled family past and surrounded by a nature as hostile as the civilization she left. The cabin nearby is supposed to be abandoned, but what if someone was hiding there?

Like a roe in the snow, this panting story provokes a necessary clatter and tells a family drama that has to be revealed once and for all.
