Mordantly funny and prescient, the latest novel from contemporary literature, the enfant terrible is a biting and provocative sideswipe at the globalization, modern society and the pharmaceutical industry. Controversial and brilliant, the Serotonin is destined to become one of the most talked about books of the year. Dissatisfied and disgruntled, Florent-Claude Labrouste feels to die of sadness. His young girlfriend hates him and his career as an engineer at the Ministry of Agriculture is practically over. His only relief comes in the form of tablets white, oval, small. Recently released for public consumption, Captorix is a new brand of anti-depressant that works by altering the brain’s release of serotonin. Armed with this new drug, Labrouste decided to leave his life in Paris and return to the Normandy campaign, where he used to work for the promotion of regional cheeses, and where he had once been in love. But instead of happiness, is a rural community devastated by globalization and European agricultural policies, local farmers and nostalgia, as Labrouste same, for an impossible return to what they remember as the golden age. Written by one of the most provocative and prophetic writers of his generation, Serotonin is a devastating story of loneliness, of longing and suffering of the individual, and a powerful critique of modern life.
