Grégoire Courtois' The Laws of the Skies on The New York Times Summer Reading List
Reviewed by Danielle Trussoni
Writing for the New York Times, Danielle Trussoni reviews Grégoire Courtois' The Laws of the Skies in her horror selection for the paper's top 75 summer reads:
"There’s nothing quite like summer to make me long for horror fiction. I can’t say why, but on hot and bright afternoons, when the sky is cerulean and the air thick with the scent of cut grass, my imagination bends toward shadowy spaces. So it’s no surprise that, when I’m piling up books for summer reading, my choices veer to the dark side...
When my French mother-in-law came to New York this spring, I asked her to bring me the French edition of Grégoire Courtois’ The Laws of the Skies (Coach House, paper, $16.95) so that I could compare the original with Rhonda Mullins’s (excellent, it turns out) translation. My belle-mère read a few chapters on the plane, and her reaction is one I will never forget: Wide-eyed, a little off balance, she gave me the book as if it were a bloody mouse pulled from a trap."
