A Perfect Disharmony

Sébastien Brebel
Translated by Jesse Anderson

A middle-aged couple takes in a prurient young woman picked up from the side of the road; a single mother struggles against the hostile feelings she harbors towards her precocious son; a man has alternative fantasies of domination and submission involving a fellow commuter; a hotel room is booked by an elderly woman in search of a place to end her life. In the fourteen stories that make up A Perfect Disharmony, Sébastien Brebel explores the experiences of isolated women and sexually obsessed men while weaving together digression, daydreams, and an accumulation of detail to create a wholly unique approach to the short story form.


Sébastien Brebel was born in 1971 in Argenteuil, France. He lives in Nantes, France where he teaches Philosophy, and is the author of three novels, of which this is his second to appear in English.
