By Pascal Quignard,Chris Turner

Prolific essayist, translator, and critic Pascal Quignard has defined his final nation sequence as anything exact. It is composed, he says, “neither of philosophical argumentation, nor brief realized essays, nor novelistic narration,” yet comes, relatively, from a section of his paintings within which the very suggestion of style has been allowed to fall away, leaving a wholly sleek, secular, and irregular imaginative and prescient of the world.

In Abysses, the latest addition to the sequence, Quignard brings us but extra of his troubling, questing characters—souls who're excited about what preceded and conceived them. He writes with a wealthy mixture of anecdote and mirrored image, aphorism and citation, supplying enigmatic glimpses of the current, and assured, pointed borrowings from the previous. but if he raids the murkier corners of the human list, he does so now not as a historian yet as an antiquarian. Quignard is so much attracted to pursuit of these tales that repeat and echo around the seasons of their timelessness.


Praise for Quignard

Quignard is surely the main iconoclastic of latest French authors.”—Catherine Argand, Lire
