Two Novels: "Jealousy" and "in the Labyrinth"

Heftet / 1994 / Engelsk
Here, in one volume, are two remarkable novels by the chief spokesman of the so-called "new novel" which has caused such discussion and aroused such controversy. "Jealousy," said the New York Times Book Review "is a technical masterpiece, impeccably contrived." "It is an exhilarating challenge," said the San Francisco Chronicle. The Times Literary Supplement of London called Robbe-Grillet an "incomparable artist" and the Guardian termed Jealousy "an extraordinary book." In his native France, leading critic Maurice Nadeau wrote in France-Observateur that "In the Labyrinth is better than an excellent novel: it is a great work of literature," and fellow novelist and critic Claude Roy judged the same work Robbe-Grillet's "best book," while here in America the "Parade of Books" column called In the Labyrinth "a highly emotional experience for the reader" and went on to predict: "Robbe-Grillet will take his place in world literature as a successor of Balzac and Proust." This volume, which offers incisive essays on Robbe-Grillet by Professor Bruce Morrissette of the University of Chicago and by French critics Roland Barthes and Anne Minor, also contains a helpful bibliography of writings by and about the author.

Newly reissued with an eye-catching cover by Peter Mendelsund, two remarkable books by legendary avant-garde writer Alain Robbe-Grillet
Praise for Alain Robbe-Grillet: "Robbe-Grillet's theories constitute the most ambitious aesthetic program since Surrealism."--John Updike "Robbe-Grillet is important because he has attacked the last bastion of the traditional art of writing: the organization of literary space"--Roland Barthes "Alain Robbe-Grillet is the forerunner of a revolution more radical than Romanticism and Naturalism were in their time."--Claude Mauriac "Robbe-Grillet was a master at conveying human misunderstanding."--Bernard-Henri Levy "I doubt that fiction as art can any longer be seriously discussed without Robbe-Grillet."--New York Times "Jealousy . . . is a technical masterpiece, impeccably contrived."--New York Times Book Review "In the Labyrinth is better than an excellent novel: it is a great work of literature."--Maurice Nadeau, France-Observateur "A highly emotional experience for the reader . . . Robbe-Grillet will take his place in world literature as a successor of Balzac and Proust."--Parade of Books, on In the Labyrinth "The suspense, built up by skillful near-repetition, keeps us on tenterhooks."--Justin O'Brien, New York Times Book Review, on The Voyeur "I can think of no other writer who can render the banal so fearfully fantastic. In the subtlest, slyest, and most sheerly delightful way her persuades us to look anew at the commonplace."--Jonathan Meades, Books and Bookmen, on The Voyeur "A haunting, mystifying evocation of a murder that will keep your attention riveted."--Dallas Morning News "[Recollections of a Golden Triangle] could be read as the French New Novelist's tribute to the vibrant Latin American fiction that his own early works helped to inspire . . . Brilliant and hypnotic . . . A finely wrought example of a master's art."--William W. Stowe, New York Times Book Review "If Robbe-Grillet wants us to realize how tenuous the link is between past and present, reality and dream, and the tricks time plays on memory, he succeeds on all counts . . . If you make the effort [to read Recollections of a Golden Triangle], you will have a richer and more rewarding experience that you would reading a conventional mystery story."--St. Louis Post-Dispatch "A sense of atmosphere and a power of representation that at best make one feel that one is looking over an artist's shoulder with one eye on the canvas and the other on the reality that he is sketching."--Times (London), on Recollections of a Golden Triangle
