An acclaimed bestseller and international sensation. In the slums of eighteenth-century France, the infant Jean-Baptiste Grenouille is born with one sublime gift-an absolute sense of smell. As a boy, he lives to decipher the odors of Paris, and apprentices himself to a prominent perfumer who teaches him the ancient art of mixing precious oils and herbs. Then one day he catches a hint of a scent that will drive him on an ever-more-terrifying quest to create the "ultimate perfume"—the scent of a beautiful young virgin. Told with dazzling narrative brillance, Perfume is a hauntingly powerful tale of murder and sensual depravity.

The Story of a Murderer is a 1985 literary historical cross-genre novel (originally published in German as Das Parfum) by German writer Patrick Suskind. The novel explores the sense of scent, and its relationship with the emotional meaning that scents may carry. Above all this is a story of identity, communication and the morality of the human spirit. In 2006 it was turned into a feature film by the same name directed by Tom Tykwer and starring Ben Whishaw, Dustin Hoffman and Alan Rickman.

Read by Sean Barratt.

Ein schönes, stilles, eindringliches Stückchen Prosa, eine Geschichte, die froh stimmt und traurig macht, so ein schmales Buch, das man in zwei Stunden ausliest, und dann lässt es einen tagelang nicht in Ruhe. Immer war er unterwegs, dieser geheimnisvolle Herr Sommer. Er spazierte bei Wind und Wetter durch die Landschaft und geisterte durch die Tag- und Alpträume eines kleinen Jungen. Eine Geschichte aus der Kindheit, aber keine Kindergeschichte.

Nel diciottesimo secolo visse in Francia un uomo, tra le figure più geniali e scellerate di quell'epoca non povera di geniali e scellerate figure. Si chiamava Jean-Baptiste Grenouille e se il suo nome, contrariamente al nome di altri mostri geniali quali de Sade, Saint-Just, Fouché, Bonaparte, oggi è caduto nell'oblio, non è certo perché Grenouille stesse indietro a questi più noti figli delle tenebre per spavalderia, disprezzo degli altri e immoralità, bensì perché il suo genio e unica ambizione rimase in un territorio che nella storia non lascia traccia: nel fugace regno degli odori.

From The New Yorker
In November, 2001, Suskind writes, Vice-President Dick Cheney announced that if there was "a one percent chance" that a threat was real "we have to treat it as a certainty in terms of our response." He added, "It's not about our analysis, or finding a preponderance of evidence." This view of a White House dangerously indifferent to facts is familiar from, among other sources, Suskind's "The Price of Loyalty," but he adds much here that is disconcerting, particularly regarding the embrace of torture. (It's hard to shake the image of Bush asking, literally, for Ayman al-Zawahiri's head, which the C.I.A. briefly thought it had found in a riverbed in Afghanistan.) Suskind, whose main source seems to be the former C.I.A. director George Tenet (to whom he is very kind), has made news with revelations about Western Union's cooperation with the C.I.A. and about a plan to release cyanide gas in subways, although it's not clear that this threat was more real than other phantom! s the White House chased.
