In this unparalled comedy by Prix Goncourt-winner Jean Echenoz, we journey with Max from the trials of his everyday life to his untimely death and on into the afterlife. After a brief stay in purgatory - part luxury hotel, part minimum-security prison supervised by dead celebrities - Max is sentenced to the urban zone, a partition of hell bearing an uncanny resemblance to his native Paris on an eternally gloomy day. Forbidden to reveal his true identity, Max engages in a hapless struggle to piece his former life back together while searching in vain for the women he once loved.
