The Standing Pool
Adam Thorpe talks to The Interview Online about the sinister and
the satirical in his new book The Standing Pool
A couple of academics rent a house in rural France for six
months with their young girls. It should be the perfect sabbatical
for these liberal freethinking academics. However they did not
bargain on their American landlords upsetting the local community
and in particular their gardener, the loner Jean Luc.
With wartime tragedies resonating in the valleys, insensitive
Americans for landlords and a gardener who is arguably the right
side of creative madness, The Standing Pool is rich in
metaphors about modern day colonialism.
