Reviews

There is a review in a blog called The Valve[1],where this novella was mentioned as having piqued the author's interest because of an opening paragraph written in the same style as Malone Meurt (Malone Dies)

La première fois que Beaumont dut faire connaissance avec sa douleur, ce fut au lit, vers quelque chose comme trois heures vingt-cinq du matin.(The first time Beaumont had to know his pain,he was in bed,and it must have been twenty five past three in the morning )
Il se retourna sur le matelas, péniblement, et sentit la résistance des couvertures et des draps qui participaient à son mouvement de rotation, mais d’une façon incongrue, en s’y opposant.
(He turned on the mattress, pain, and felt like being powerfully enveloped even though he was all the while trying to counter those blankets and sheets as they rotated)
Comme si une main invisible avait tordu les tissus autour de son torse et de ses hanches immobiles
(It was as if an invisible hand had twisted all the tissues of the torso of his body as well as having twisted his hips)
