Although the work of Volodine is based on the dramas of the 20th Century, his books border on being historic or engagé novels. He writes "a piece of foreign literature in French", marked by the Fantastic, dream, and even politics. Despite their strangeness, his characters, defeated revolutionists and ghosts roaming the afterlife, talk to us in a language not unlike our own, infused with humour and tenderness.
