L'ETRANGE VOYAGE DE MONSIEUR DALDY

We all have two lives... The life we know and another one, that lies waiting for us.

Alice is a "nose"-a creator of perfumes. She is passionate about her work and her only distraction from her job is her motley group of friends, who convene for late night soirees in her apartment-much to the annoyance of her cantankerous neighbor Mr. Daldry. On Christmas Eve 1950, something happens that will change Alice's life forever: during an outing to Brighton with her friends, a fortune teller makes a mysterious prediction about Alice's future. Alice has never believed in soothsayers but she cannot stop thinking about the old woman's words.

"The most important man in your life was walking behind you a few moments ago. To find him, you will have to undertake a long journey and meet six people who will lead you to him. You have two lives in you, Alice. The life you know and another one, which is waiting for you."

From then on her nights are plagued with nightmares that are as real as they are incomprehensible. Alice's neighbor, Mr. Daldry, notices the unrest that the fortune teller provokes in Alice. For reasons he will not reveal, Daldry encourages Alice to take the predictions seriously and convinces her to set off to find the six people who will shape her fate. To make sure that Alice does not change her mind, the eccentric bachelor even agrees to accompany her on the journey.

The Strange Journey of Mr. Daldry takes us into the heart of Europe in the 1950s, into lives that are haunted by the demons of a recent past. It's a story of friendship and things left unsaid, personified above all by Mr. Daldry, an unforgettable character who is as passionate as he is restrained, as serious as he is funny, as reliable as he is surprising.

The Author
Ο ΜΑΡΚ ΛΕΒΙ γεννήθηκε στη Γαλλία το 1961. Στα δεκαοκτώ του και για έξι χρόνια εργάστηκε για τον Ερυθρό Σταυρό, ενώ παράλληλα σπούδασε διοίκηση και προγραμματισμό ηλεκτρονικών υπολογιστών στο Πανεπιστήμιο Paris-Dauphine. Το 1983 ίδρυσε μια εταιρεία ειδικευμένη στη σύνθεση ψηφιακής εικόνας, με έδρα τη Γαλλία και τις ΗΠΑ. Έξι χρόνια αργότερα παραιτήθηκε και ξεκίνησε από την αρχή, ιδρύοντας μαζί με δυο φίλους του ένα αρχιτεκτονικό γραφείο που σύντομα έγινε μια από τις πιο διάσημες αρχιτεκτονικές εταιρείες στη Γαλλία. Στα τριάντα επτά του, ο Λεβί έγραψε το πρώτο μυθιστόρημά του με τίτλο Όπως στον παράδεισο, το οποίο έγινε κινηματογραφική ταινία με μεγάλη επιτυχία.  Είναι ο πιο ευπώλητος συγγραφέας στη Γαλλία τα τελευταία δώδεκα χρόνια. Τα μυθιστορήματά του έχουν μεταφραστεί σε 45 γλώσσες και έχουν πουλήσει περισσότερα από 27 εκατομμύρια αντίτυπα παγκοσμίως. Στα ελληνικά κυκλοφορούν εφτά μυθιστορήματά του.
