Zade meets Driss in a Parisian café; they are suddenly catapulted into the world of young love. But tragedy strikes and Zade's brave new world falls apart. In despair, she retreats to her favourite haunt, Père Lachaise cemetery, where help appears from an unexpected quarter . . . Zade is an astonishing debut novel. It brings together the intimate playfulness of first love, the despair of loss and the irreverent wisdom of some of the most creative spirits ever to have lived. It is a profound, tender investigation of love, life, death and memory.
