The 7th Function of Language

Laurent Binet

An extremely funny, capering who-dunnit: who killed Roland Barthes? Semiotics and saunas; la rive gauche and liberal lefties; politics and poison – this is a glorious take on the roman policier and a fine political satire. Binet has intellect as well as wit, and this novel is as finely structured as his best-selling first novel, ‘HHhH‘.
