Awesome book cover Friday: The Investigation

Happy Friday! Today’s pick is The Investigation by Philippe Claudel.

The Investigation

The novel is “a dark fable that evokes the absurdity and alienation of existence with piercing intelligence and considerable humor.” It’s about an investigator who just can’t catch a break, and with all his bad luck, he’s supposed to solve a series of suicides — 22 in the same building makes an unusual case. The book description calls it “a wild, Kafka-esque romp through a dystopian landscape, probing the darkly comic nature of the human condition.”
