Product Description


'With obvious affinities to Kafka's The Castle, The Tartar Steppe is a serener and more immediately rewarding book.' -- The Times --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

"It is not often that a masterpiece falls into one's hands. But The Tartar Steppe is undoubtedly a masterpiece, a sublime book and Buzzati a master of the written word." John Keegan, Sunday Times Written in 1938 as the world waited for war, and internationally acclaimed since its publication, The Tartar Steppe is a provocative and frightening tale of hope, longing and the terrible sorcery of dreams and desires. 'A beautiful, masterly novel that shimmers like a mirage, bringing into sharp focus the rise and fall of our ambitions and the pitiless erosion of time. It is the story of one Giovanni Drogo - yet how many of us will be stricken to recognise something of ourselves in him?' Yann Martel 'The Tartar Steppe is a nightmare, a comedy of errors, a beautiful and anguished fable, a call to resistance against folly, the inspired assurance that one last act may justify our lifelong struggle to remain human.' Alberto Manguel 'There are names that the coming generations will not resign themselves to forget. Surely one of them is that of Dino Buzzati.' Jose Luis Borges Cover design by Tim Byrne Cover image (c) Adam Woolfitt/CORBIS CANON#GATE £7.99 ISBN 978 1 84195 --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
