9780141184098: Blue of Noon (Penguin Modern Classics)

Against the backdrop of Facist Europe, the novel's narrator hastens despairingly from city to city in a sexual and mental nightmare - his internal collapse mirroring the fighting on the streets. Will he identify with history's victims or be seduced by the glamour of its terrible victors?
