Who hasn't wanted to become 'someone else'? The person you've always wanted to be...the person who hadn't given up half way to your dreams and desires? One evening at a bar two men who have just met at their tennis club in Paris conclude that it is time to change their lives and decide to meet again in three years time to see whose transformation is the more radical. Thierry is a picture framer with a steady clientele, but he has always wanted to be a private investigator. Nicolas is a shy teetotal executive trying not to fall off the corporate ladder. But becoming another is not without risk; at the very least the risk of finding yourself. A helter-skelter tale of humour and suspense.

Recensioner i media

The author keeps up a breathless pace, touching effortlessly on identity, love, alcohol, old age, the cynicism of the business world, friendship. A great novel that would make a great film' Les Echos Someone Else won the literary prize RTL-Lire in 2002. 'A high-wire act that plays hide and seek with appearances. Benacquista is a wonderful novelist. A book to be celebrated.' Le Point 'Impeccable writing, tight rhythm, the novel offers a fresh view of the ruthless corporate world, identity and voyeurism. Humour, tenderness, despair: without doubt Benacquista's best.' L'Express
