4.0 out of 5 stars Sexistential 25 Nov 2003
A very slim 'read-it-in-one-sitting' novel but structured around the most important of themes.
Joe, too often (and self-defeatingly) identified as Camus' main protagonist in 'The Outsider'is a superbly realised character whose sexual confidence has literally deadly consequences.
Trochhi was once a paid pornographer and there is a vivid and beautifuly depicted scene where ... well let's just say it involves custard and some other household fluids.
The turgid opening paragraphs on the difficulty of language disqualifies this novella from five stars but there also fine insights into both personality traits and the physical landscape of canal life - that outer point of urban living.
The recent film is very faithful to this text, though, as is often the case, inferior to it as well.
