A Dubray Staff Recommended Read .... A successful French entrepeneur with a sideline in professional assassinations, an up-and-coming Nigerian rapper, a depressed author, a film edtor and a single mother: they have a little in common except that they're all passengers on board Air France Flight 006 from Paris to New York when something very strange happens. With the pace of a thriller, and added metaphysics and philosophy, this strangely wonderful novel has won the Prix Goncourt and already sold a million copies by Aoife Roantree, Dubray Grafton street.

*PRE-ORDER THE NO. 1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER NOW*

WINNER OF THE PRIX GONCOURT. 920,000 COPIES SOLD. AN INTERNATIONAL PHENOMENON.

'An adventure, a page turner, a bestseller, but also an experimental, highly literary work' Le Figaro Magazine

What do you do if your life is no longer your own?

When flight Air France 006 enters a terrifying storm, the plane - inexplicably - duplicates. For every passenger on board that day, there are now two - a double with the same mind, body and memories.

Just one thing sets them apart. One plane leaves the storm in March. The other doesn't land until June. For world leaders, the emergence of the June flight raises serious alarms. No science, faith, or protocol can explain this unprecedented event.

But for the passengers, a bigger question is at stake. What happens to them, now that their life is shared? What happens to those who land in June, when their March doubles make decisions that will change their lives forever?

And as the doubles prepare to meet, they have an extraordinary decision to make.

If there are two of them, and just one life - who gets to live it?

A runaway bestseller and winner of the 2020 Prix Goncourt, The Anomaly is a genre-defying, whip-smart novel that explores the very essence of who we are.

'It's dizzying, exhilarating, brilliant!' Nicholas Carreau, Europe 1

'This novel is an exquisite, insane surprise. Quite simply astounding' Le Journal du Dimanche

'Le Tellier, throughout this flight, deposits on the tarmac his stunned reader, ready to applaud' L'Opinion
