It is a fun idea, and Pennac spins it out nicely. He is also pretty much the guardian of a load of half-brothers and sisters, and a particularly foul smelling dog. More than anything The Scapegoat is about colour and description. Pennac does a good job of describing Belleville, his family, the department store, the odd characters that populate it, and the police.

There is also, incidentally, a plot. Of sorts. Which is where the police come in. He is investigated, and he investigates. The mystery part of the book is not its greatest strength. Pennac contrives an okay plot and denouement, but most of the fun is in what happens around it.

Semi-intellectual, extremely laid-back, liberal, loving, he is a sympathetic though perhaps too much larger-than-life character. This preposterous selection is enough to break the hearts of readers on the other side of the Atlantic well, the three of you who have actually heard of these authors. Perec-translator and Oulipo member Ian Monk does an honorable job of translating a book that is so heavy on slang that it almost sinks even in the original.

A great deal is inevitably awkward, but the gist and the freewheeling feel of the novel do shine through. The language will, however, be an obvious annoyance to many and particularly American readers.
