Product Description (via amazon.com)

Set in Paris and attracting comparisons with Franz Kafka and Edgar Allan Poe, "The Pigeon" is Patrick Suskind's tense, disturbing follow-up to the bestselling Perfume. The novella tells the story of a day in the meticulously ordered life of bank security guard Jonathan Noel, who has been hiding from life since his wife left him for her Tunisian lover. When Jonathan opens his front door on a day he believes will be just like any other, he encounters not the desired empty hallway but an unwelcome, diabolical intruder...

Book Quote:
...he came to the conclusion that you cannot depend on people, and that you can live in peace only if you keep them at arm's length.”  

How quickly the apparently solidly laid foundation of one's existence could crumble.” ―Patrick SuskindThe Pigeon
