Quite a symbol. Tuesday, the Editions de Fallois announced that they were closing shop, a little less than four years after the death of their founder. “The Editions de Fallois, founded in 1987, will end their activity on December 31, 2021,” the group notes in a press release. The Editions de Fallois have listed more than 800 titles in their catalog. […] Raymond Aron rubs shoulders with Marcel Pagnol in particular. […] They also made known in France the novels of Rose Tremain […] and revealed to the whole world those of Joël Dicker. “

A very timely conclusion. In March, the Swiss author who has sold millions of books (including “The Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair”) announced that he was leaving his historic publishing house to launch his own in early 2022. He unveiled some the name, “Rosie & Wolfe”, just five days ago. “It’s not self-publishing, but a real publishing house with a dedicated team,” he added. There he plans to publish his novels and those of other authors.
