About this title

Synopsis:

Mathias, a timorous, ineffectual traveling salesman, returns to the island of his birth after a long absence. Two days later, a thirteen-year-old girl is found drowned and mutilated. With eerie precision, Robbe-Grillet puts us at the scene of the crime and takes us inside Mathias’s mind, artfully enlisting us as detective hot on the trail of a homocidal maniac. A triumphant display of the techniques of the “new novel,” The Voyeur achieves the impossible feat of keeping us utterly engrossed in the mystery of the child’s murder while systematically raising doubts about whether it really occurred.

About the Author:

Alain Robbe-Grillet (1922-2008) was a prominent postwar avant-garde novelist and filmmaker. He was a founder of the Noveau Roman literary movement, along with Nathalie Sarraute, Michel Butor and Claude Simon. He is the author of The Erasers, The Voyeur, Jealousy, In the Labyrinth, Recollections of the Golden Triangle, and La Maison de Rendez-vous.
