The Hounded Man
ReviewA tale of a man who commits murder and lives his life after that fact. Of course, since this is a Francis Carco piece of work, there is a woman of the streets who share with the leading character's misery, dread, and fear. Also, the city of Paris adds a certain amount of noir existence in the mix as well.
Carco is an amazing writer, who specializes in little pyscho-dramas that takes place in Parisian hotels and bars. Why he isn't more known in the English language world is a mystery
This book is a gem! It's male and female soul poured into a book. What a surprise! What astonishment! What sensitivity so well described! A work that brings Man and Females together.
