To invite you to travel through the power of words alone, to offer you a break during the time of a novel, to make you discover a universe thanks to the strength of a piece of writing: this is the vocation of Les Escales.
Created in 2012, Les Escales is a generalist publishing house that publishes novels from around the world. In just six years Les Escales has revealed talents such as Victoria Hislop, Karen Viggers, Rabih Alameddine and Laura Barnett.
From the icy Arctic to the underbelly of Mexico City, from a Cretan island to Tuscan villas, from the streets of Berlin to the camps of Siberia, Escales interweaves individual journeys, family odysseys and historical frescoes. When escape rhymes with thrill, Escales noires, the thriller collection, is also cosmopolitan and varied.
The tremors of history, family secrets, modern odysseys, the powers of nature, let yourself be carried away by the singular voices of French and Francophone literature…
Carried along by a true novelistic breath, the novels of the Domaine français collection plunge the reader into the heart of the extraordinary lives of ordinary men and women, weaving the destinies of characters who resemble us, whatever the era, whatever the place.
Because we are always curious about lives that are different from our own, we now offer stories. Strong, moving testimonies, which have touched us deeply and which, by their themes, are the mirror of our novels.
