Rigodon

£9.99

Product description

Completed the day before his death in 1961, Rigadoon, the mostcompassionate of Celine's novels, explores the ravages of war and its aftermath. The final entry in Celine's horrific trilogy (the preceding volumes are Castle to Castle and North) about his and his wife's flight from Vichy France through a collapsing Third Reich to Denmark, as they desperately seek to avoid punishment as Nazi collaborators. Often comic and always angry, the first-person autobiographical narrator, with his wife and their cat in tow, takes the reader with him on his flight from Paris to Denmark after finding himself on the losing side of World War II. The train rides that encompass the novel are filled with madness and mercy.... Celine quite deliberately makes us feel the inescapable, mind-rotting horror of endless chaos.

Pages good condition, Pages and cover little edge wear.
