The Flood

The Flood

Author: J.M.G. Le Clezio
$24.95(AUD)  inc GST

Francois Besson listens to a tape recording of a girl contemplating suicide. Drifting through the days in a provincial city, he thoughtlessly starts a fire in his apartment, attends confession, and examines, with great intentness but without affection, a naked woman he wakes beside. And, as Besson moves through an ugly and threatening rain, his thoughts eventually lead to violence, first turned outward and then directed languidly against himself.


'This terrifying vision of existence is conveyed with intense poetic power' Guardian
