Book synopsis

A close reading of Journey To The End of The Night and Death On The Installment Plan which shows that Céline's genius carries him all the way to Santayana's «absolute grotesque reality.»


Contents: This book provides the only close reading of Journey To The End Of The Night and Death On The Installment Plan in English. It is, furthermore, the only book on Céline that sides with his novels completely.


«Céline wrote the greatest novels of our century and Wayne Burns has written the only book that really understands them and their greatness.» (Gerald J.Butler, San Diego State University)
«Enfin Céline Vint is not only comprehensive, but finally says what English commentary has failed to say - either for lack of understanding or lack of courage.» (William K. Buckley, Indiana University Northwest) «L'essai de Wayne Burns est extrêmement sympathique et mériterait d'être traduit.» (Jacques d'Arribehaude, Le Bulletin Célinien)
