"[Jean-Claude] Izzo digs deep into what makes men weep."-Time Out New York

Rico has neither a roof over his head, nor a steady income on which to depend. He has, in effect, been banished to society's margins. When a friend and fellow clochard dies of exposure after a night spent in the Paris metro, Rico decides to flee the northern cold for his beloved south-for Marseilles and the Mediterranean.

From the celebrated author of the Marseilles Trilogy, this is both an affecting on-the-road novel and a tender exploration of love's power to both heal and destroy.
