Big Blondes

“[Echenoz] delights in savaging mass media cliches like television docudramas or action-adventure movies . . . dispatch[ing] them with gleeful silliness.” —The New York Times Book Review

Renowned singer Gloire Stella has mysteriously disappeared. When a television producer tries to track her down, Gloire goes on the run. From the cliffs of Brittany to the back alleys of Bombay, Big Blondes is a riotous, nonstop adventure for anyone who has ever wondered whether blondes really do have more fun.



“[A] gentle tending to perversity links Echenoz to that other master of the perverse detail, Vladimir Nabokov. . . . Right now go out and join the millions who will enjoy Big Blondes.”
Los Angeles Times Book Review
“Echenoz picks out the absurd nuances of pop culture and twists them into a contemporary detective book. . . . A hilarious read.”
