I love stories: reading a good story allows me to escape, to invent new lives – whether more beautiful or crueler. When, to top it all, the writing style is precise and full of imagery, the pleasure of reading reaches its highest point. “Goodbye up there”, by Pierre Lemaitre, respects both criteria: the story is breath-taking and the author’s style is elegant. A true delight.
