This is the first English translation of French writer, Pierre Guyotat's legendary novel, which was recently included in Le Monde's "100 Greatest Novels of the 20th Century." A violent collision of brutal warfare and sexual ecstasy, Guyotat is said to have hallucinated the subject matter as a young soldier during the Algerian war, where the novel is set.
Pierre Guyotat was born in France in 1940. His most recent book is Progenitors (Gallimard, 2000).

Guyotat, Pierre (b. 1940). One of the most avantgarde and subversive French novelists of the later 20th c. Guyotat's works examine the violence of language, sexuality, politics, racism, and war. It was his third novel, TOM FOR 500,000 SOLDIERS (1967), in which he recounts in oneiric fashion his experiences as a French soldier in Algeria, that established his reputation as a controversial writer. His fourth novel, Éden, Éden, Éden (1970), was declared obscene and censored. Subsequent works include Prostitution (1976), Le Livre (1984), and Vivre (1984).
