To Hell With Politeness (and With the Stranger Next Door)!

A review of Amélie Nothomb’s postmodern classic.

Amélie Nothomb is the daughter of two Belgian diplomats. Her books are dark and a little gothic, just like herself. One of her earliest works was The Stranger Next Door, a postmodern classic published in 1995. It is the story of a married couple who crave tranquility but fear silence.
