Jean-Claude Izzo - placeholder book cover


Jean-Claude Izzo shot to international fame in the 1990’s as the author of the now legendary ‘Marseilles Trilogy’ of thrillers (Total Chaos, Chourmo and Solea, published in English translation by Arcadia Books). His distinctive brand of vivid, pacy crime writing has captured the imaginations of readers the world over, encapsulating Marseilles’ simmering issues of race, politics, organized crime and big business, and igniting a whole genre of ‘Marseille Noir.’ Before his death in 2001, Izzo also earned a reputation as a formidable short story writer with the collection Vivre Fatigue.
