AUTHOR

Sartre, Jean-Paul, Alexander, Lloyd

SUMMARY

In the five stories included in this collection - "The Wall," "The Room," "Erostratus," "Intimacy" and "The Childhood of a Leader" - the French master of Existentialism displays his powers of narrative and psychological insight at their most effective. Sartre's characters and situations mirror the conflicts, complexities, neuroses and sensuality of the twentieth century. His intellectual underworld includes a modern Erostratus who is compelled to murder, a psychotic who communicates his hallucinations to his formerly-sane spouse, an unfaithful wife still bound to her importent husband, a boy's metamorphosis into an anti-semitic fascist, and the astonishing fate of a political prisoner. The close-ups of these people living in a contemporary world are vividly real; their stories are gripping and almost unbearably suspenseful. Polyphonic themes of decadence, sexual perversion, insanity and political and social amorality are skill-fully woven throughout the entire collection of stories. Translated by Lloyd Alexander, this is an unexpurgated edition. Punch said of the English edition: "Leaves Lady Chatterley's Lover asleep at the post." An earlier clothbound edition of this collection was published under the title Intimacy. Book jacket.Sartre, Jean-Paul is the author of 'Wall And Other Stories', published 1969 under ISBN 9780811201902 and ISBN 0811201902.
