Je m’en vais is an 1999 Prix Goncourt-winning novel by the French author Jean Echenoz.

Jean Echenoz uses his own approach and has his own style which is the reason why he has so rapidly become France’s leading writer, with only five novels prior to this one under his belt.

Resume: Je m’en vais begins simply enough: the hero, an urbane Parisian art dealer, tells his wife he’s leaving her, drops his keys on the table, and walks out forever. His new existence is as madcap and unpredictable as his old was staid. French phenomenon Jean Echenoz’s newest novel is a bitingly humorous look at the uncertainties of love at midlife, a suspenseful crime caper, and a witty, satirical foray into corruption in the international art market.
