9780099530497: War (Vintage Classics)

War - in the mind of the fragile Bea B., in the infinite icy landscape she journeys through, in Vietnam, in 10,000 years of human history. The war of the title is not merely a war of arms but a generalised state of violence permeating every atom of Le Clézio's creation. Bea B. searches for clues for the origin of the evil. Under her searching gaze the most everyday objects - advertisements, cars, light bulbs - reveal extraordinary dimensions, as the earth trembles on the brink of cataclysmic explosion.

Review:

"Beautifully translated by Simon Watson-Taylor" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"Persons still in two minds about the meaning of life would do well to study War" (Martin Amis)

"An author of new departures, poetic adventure and sensual ecstasy, explorer of a humanity beyond and below the reigning civilization" (Nobel Prize Committee)

"A density of marvellous prose shot through with jagged lightning-flashes of perception...What a writer!" ( Sunday Times)
