The Bs follows the adventures of an ordinary man who discovers at a very young age the advantage he has over others. Believing it gives meaning to his existence, this good-for-nothing decides to take on the role of “ferryman”: he will indirectly cause the deaths of people whose names start with the letter B!
That’s how, starting in 1980 over a period of twenty years, he will be the catalyst for the disappearances of the singer Mike Brant, the serial poisoner Marie Besnard, the semiologist Roland Barthes, politician René Bousquet, and the painter Bernard Buffet… with one exception, when he acts directly but gently, he will use his powers of persuasion to push some to the edge of their depression or despair, at times even helping them commit the act. With distant similarities to a crime thriller, The Bs is above all a cynical, bizarre, and touching novel: with no reason to fear one’s own end, it’s better to accept it, even master it, but is it really possible?
