Perfume: The Story of a Murderer (Vintage International)
- Vintage (2001年2月13日発売)
This was a bestseller in the mid-80s.
It's not really a particularly likeable book, but horribly compelling.
It is 18th century Paris. The main character Jean-Baptiste Grenouille has no smell of his own, but has this ability to recognise any scent. He sets out to become the greatest perfumier ever, and murders people to possess their scent.
The way Suskind paints word pictures of scents is amazing.
