PAPERBACK
The third translated title from Serge Joncour, following on from Wild Dog, a Strong Words Magazine  Book of the Year in 2020, and Lean on Me, Human Nature won the prestigious Prix Femina in 2020 and has sold more than 140,000 copies in France. Also slated to be a film distributed by Ad Vitam Family saga with environmental backdrop, exploring the relationship between the local and the global and our relationship with the natural world. Environmentally focused literary fiction: for fans of titles by Barbara Kingsolver, Annie Proulx and Richard Powers. A critique of globalization, corporate greed, and the notion of progress - adapt or die. Topical themes: Supermarkets. Coming of the motorway. Urban environmentalism. Intensive agriculture, battery farming, productivity, mad cow disease. Autobiographical inspiration: Serge Joncour lives in Paris but his family background is in farming in the rural Lot area of France, where Wild Dog was also set. He is interested in the different relationships people have with nature depending on whether they live in the countryside or an urban environment.
