In Dylan Fisher’s debut novella, told in a sequence of long, twisting, breathless sentences, the titular The Loneliest Band in France claims to have a song that can hurt —even kill—its listeners. When Migara (a Sri Lankan student, new to Montpellier) is recruited to help debut this murderous song, he’s forced to interrogate his relationship with his mother’s death, his estranged father, his own aspirations—and the cost of each.

Dylan Fisher’s first book, The Loneliest Band in France, was the Winner of Texas Review Press’s 2019 Clay Reynolds Novella Prize and a 2020 Coups de Cœur selection by The American Library in Paris. He holds a MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He lives in Atlanta, Georgia, where he’s pursuing a PhD in Creative Writing at Georgia State University.
