The girl of paper

Can fiction influence real life? 

“She appeared on my terrace on a stormy night, soaking wet and stark naked:
– Where did you come from?
– I fell…
– Fell out of what?
– Fell out of your book. You know, out of your story!”

Tom Boyd, a famous writer who’s suffering from writer’s block, meets one day the heroin of his novels. She’s pretty, desperate, and tells him she will die if he stops writing.
Impossible? And yet…

Tom and Billie will embark together on an adventure where reality and fiction are intricately intertwined, constantly shifting in a seductive and potentially deadly game…

Blaise de Chabalier du Figaro Littéraire
Girl on Paper is probably Guillaume Musso’s best novel to date (…). His fans will not be disappointed. The plot is flawless, and the ending is particularly well-crafted and surprising.
Jérôme Vermelin, Métro
Funnier and more caustic that usual, Musso’s style remains sinfully effective.
Pierre Vavasseur, Le Parisien
Musso is right to risk everything with this novel. (..) Girl on Paper is a cheeky magic trick. Better than that: an elegant migration as light as the flight of a bird, between imaginary and reality. (..). We must have forgotten that life is a novel. Thi
Direct Soir
Musso has a gift for creating original plots, and building and sustaining suspense until the last page.
