The other Fatale I've been reading is the novel by Jean-Patrick Manchette, recently translated and attractively published by the New York Review of Books. A slim novel, it concerns a woman who is on a killing spree in France. I'm not done reading it yet but I am enjoying it immensely. I wish more were available in English by Manchette. I have another novel of his, The Prone Gunman. And there is another I will soon buy. I know he has done some work with Jacques Tardi (or maybe Tardi has adapted Manchette's work into graphic novels) and I will be looking into those soon.
