Reseña del editor:

Guyotat's unique elision of brutal warfare and sexual ecstasy is regularly claimed as the greatest French novel of modern times. Compacting together elements from mythology, Lautreamont's Maldoror and Luis Bunuel's film Los Olvidados, he assembled a vision of contemporary life as a relentless display of slavery, prostitution and degradation, in which only catastrophic eruptions of atrocity and the delirious intervention of depraved sex acts can possess meaning for the book's lacerated human figures.

Reseña del editor:

This is the first English translation of French writer, Pierre Guyotat's legendary novel, which was recently included in "Le Monde"'s "100 Greatest Novels of the 20th Century." A violent collision of brutal warfare and sexual ecstasy, Guyotat is said to have hallucinated the subject matter as a young soldier during the Algerian war, where the novel is set.

Pierre Guyotat was born in France in 1940. His most recent book is "Progenitors" (Gallimard, 2000).
