Artificial Snow is the debut novel from Florian Zeller, the precociously talented French writer and playwright an urbane, witty and heavily autobiographical portrait of the lives of twenty-somethings in Paris, describing their insecurities, their preoccupations and their egotism.
A piece of sharp, often unsettling, autofiction, dissecting life, loneliness and the Parisian dinner party, Artifical Snow is also a twisted love story, centred on a woman with whom the narrator has had a brief relationship and is now obsessed.
