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.
We are the Birds of the Coming Storm, Hardback (September 2014)

The girls are inseparable, and both their lives have been shattered by the horror of rape.
