Benjamin Malaussene, the Belleville scapegoat, and his family of
half sisters and brothers are once again the target for a series of
increasingly catastrophic mishaps which culminate in his
imprisonment on 21 counts of murder. Meanwhile, the real serial
killer remains at large. In this sprawling novel, which brings the
Belleville Quintet to a close, Pennac has allowed his unique
imagination to run riot. The result is an increasingly huge cast of
unforgettable characters and a series of inter-related plot lines
which curl around one another before finally unravelling. From the
art of the tattoo to cinema history, and the intricacies of
cutting-edge surgery to the wonders of the wines of Jura, there is
something for everyone in this extraordinary tale.
