Eric Chevillard is a renowned contemporary author who is one of the most inventive young writers on the French literary scene. His third novel, Palafox, explores the ecosystem of an unclassifiable yet enchanting protean creature. A team of 'experts' armed with degrees of higher learning is determined to label, train, pamper, baptise and classify the elusive creature, while Palafox - driven by his own interior logic and flanked by another dimension for the most part on his side - effortlessly and wordlessly defies them all.
