In the Crowd by Laurent Mauvignier

Book Description

May 1985, Jeff and Tonino, two Parisian football fans with serious drinking habits, are on their way to the European Cup final between Liverpool and Juventus, at the Heysel Stadium in Brussels. So too are Tana and Francesco, newlyweds from Genoa; Gabriel and Virginie, a young Belgian couple with troubles of their own; and, Liverpool supporter, Geoff Andrewson, who is travelling with his two thuggish brothers. On the eve and day of the game these four groups of characters converge and cross paths, and as the excitement of the build up gives way to horrific tragedy, their lives and relationships are changed forever. A mesmerising portrait of people attempting to come to terms with a devastating historical event and their role within it, "In the Crowd" is a hugely compelling and emotive novel.

Wound by Laurent Mauvignier Wound, Paperback (February 2015)

"Where is your wound?" asks Jean Genet in the lines Laurent Mauvignier uses as an epigraph to The Wound. By the time we have finished this four-part novel, we realise that for many the wound lies four decades back in "the Events" that people have tried not to talk about ever since: the Algerian War.
