Random House, Inc.
A lonely young woman works as an announcer in Paris’s Gare du Nord, surrounded by people yet separate from them. Obsessed with a man who loves another, she suffers alone as she waits for him. In her solitude, she wanders the streets of the modern city, playing on the edge of danger, seeking connection. Her interactions with strangers create a confrontation between the intimate and the anonymous, revealing to her man’s most human desires.

Just thirty, debut literary novelist Céline Curiol has the ability to write, with great psychological tension, about the innermost depth of her characters, with all their contradictions, impulses, and humanity. She captures an existential and witty vision of our contemporary world.

Voice Over was recently published in the author’s native France to great acclaim, and rights have been sold in fourteen countries. The novel appears now for the first time in English.
