"A dazzlingly clever and immensely entertaining novel." —New York Times

By chance, John and Jean—one English, the other French—meet in a provincial railway station. Their resemblance to each other is uncanny, and they spend the next few hours talking and drinking - until at last John falls into a drunken stupor.

Gripping and complex, The Scapegoat is a masterful exploration of doubling and identity, and of the dark side of the self.
