Format: Paperback
Without doubt, buying this volume won't be a disappointment. Ambrose Bierce is (the) one of America's writers who successfully tried to fill in the void between Poe and H.P. Lovecraft. He's also, perhaps, one of the first surrealists in American literary history since he manages to combine naturalistic description with metaphysical speculation in an unprecedented way. Against the backdrop of America's Civil War, he delineates the destruction of the human body in the face of ulterior forces in a way which is mesmerising and revolting at the same time. This makes him a unique presence in literary history - so don't miss out.
