A taut, suspenseful psychological journey from which there is no escape. The 6:41 to Paris shatters any illusions that acts of cruelty committed in our youth are of little consequence later in life. A gripping yarn for our time.”Kati Marton, author of Paris: A Love Story
"Blondel conveys ... a shared, suspenseful dread that makes you want to turn every page at locomotive pace."The St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"Perfectly written and a remarkably suspenseful read ... an absorbing, intriguing, insightful book for all readers."Library Journal (Starred review)
"A fast, yet deep journey through the characters' experiences of anger, triumph, remorse, and forgiveness, Blondel's novel ... reminds us that even long-ago heartbreaks have the power to ignite our most powerful emotions."
"Two former lovers find themselves sitting next to each other on a train after 27 years apart ... as their thoughts compellingly trace the meandering paths between who they once were and who they are now."Publishers Weekly
"A compelling story ... examining what happens in our minds when we undergo unexpected encounters that are both awkward and personal. Memory, pain, love, and privacy all permeate the clear, clever prose."World Literature Today
A terrific read. Jean-Philippe Blondel writes masterfully about the astonishing private realm, with two alternating monologues that echo one another.”
"So much of this quiet and introspective novel is a touching portrayal of life’s disappointments and what happens when one is unexpectedly ambushed by the past. Short and sweet."
A book for the heart that from the first until the last sentence you can’t put down.”
Avoids the trap of sentimentality It also reads as the reflection of our contemporary condition.” Le Nouvel Observateur
Blondel has written a comedy about an awkward encounter that’s a must-read. Funny, wise and conciliatory.”Stern
A fine book, in wonderfully precise and sensitive language, unpretentious and full of small truths." Die Presse
