A series of droll vignettes of everyday French life... except for the fact that each short story features one or more characters that have the very special ability of walking through walls, and through any other objects for that matter, which tends to "enliven" things quite a bit. These touching and humorous chronicles by the talented team of Jean-Luc Cornette and Stephane Oiry are full of the European sensibility seen in titles such as the Monsieur Jean series. Published here in its entirety and in the English language for the first time.

Review: "I began it expecting a diverting trifle and came away with one of the entries on my best of year list. You can’t really ask more of a book." - Forbidden Planet
