Northern novels

The Nord Pas de Calais region is a hotbed of French literature. Proletarian destinies soar above industrial sagas, and the union battles the bank for capital gains. Texts that tell of misery and tragedy, often, but also of the solidarity shown by the "people of the North". From Emile Zola to Victor Hugo, from Georges Simenon to Didier Daeninckx, classic or contemporary, dark and luminous books like the beaches of the North Sea.
