By Serge Joncour

£10.99

A house on a French hillside. Two couples: the wife of a doctor presumed killed on the battlefields of the First World War, and a mysterious German lion tamer hiding his circus animals from requisition; and Parisian Franck and his wife Lise, who has booked them into the isolated gite to escape twenty-first century life. When a hungry wolfdog emerges from the forest, Franck begins to discover dark secrets about the house, and himself.

Description

‘[A] deservedly award-studded delight’ Strong Words Magazine

A smart, scathing and bleakly funny cross of folk horror, satire and historical fiction’ Toronto Star

‘Reads like a modern fairy tale’ New York Journal of Books

‘Eerie and sensual’ The Guardian

‘So original, so beautifully done, and sinister and savage. I didn’t want it to end’ Chris Whitaker

Franck and Lise, a French couple in the film industry, rent a cottage in the quiet hills of the French Lot to get away from the stresses of modern life.

In this remote corner of the world, there is no phone signal. A mysterious dog emerges, looking for a new master. Ghosts of a dark past run wild in these hills, where a German lion tamer took refuge in the First World War ? Franck and Lise are confronted with nature at its most brutal. And they are about to discover that man and beast have more in common than they think.

A literary sensation in France, Wild Dog is a dark, menacing tale of isolation, human nature and the infinite savagery of the wild.
