Published in 2020, L'Anomalie won the prestigious Prix Goncourt in the same year. An Oulipian work, the novel explores a wide range of themes including identity, reality, and the human condition, all framed within a speculative fiction scenario that involves a commercial airplane and its passengers experiencing an inexplicable anomaly.
The story poses existential questions through its complex narrative structure and multiple viewpoints, which allows it to delve into the psyches of various characters. The novel has been praised for its ambitious storytelling, which combines elements of mystery, science fiction, and philosophical inquiry.
"Swerves between various genres—science fiction, a thriller, love stories, an introspective work—without being confined by any of them." —New York Times
