Love, Kill, Live

On Perfume: The Story of a Murderer (1986) by Patrick Süskind


In Grenouille, Süskind has created a beloved serial killer with a powerful sense  of smell. His beginning, a Dickens novel; his journey, a bildungsroman; his end, a Sartrian exit. More than an inspirational manual for murderers, Perfume is a treatise on the implosive relation between love and existence.
