Literary synopsis

This book of Christian Dotremont is in the form of a novel in the first person, although many passages in fact reproduce the interior monologue of the narrator. The story is simple, almost trivial, but with seemingly harmless phrases that sometimes turn close to the spoken language, the author expresses deep thoughts about life and relationship to the world.
