Overstayed. Fans of The Twilight Zone or Alfred Hitchcock are those readers most likely to enjoy Marie NDiaye’s novel titled, That Time of Year. Instead of returning to Paris from their rural vacation on August 31, a family waited one more day in the village, a decision with dramatic consequences. The horror in this weird and odd story kept me turning pages, always agog at how everything can change overnight.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
