Product description

Review

'A rich, sprawling, searching, poetic, provocative, broadly historic and demanding novel, which in all those ways displays the essence of Le Clézio. As a reflection on colonization and its legacy, it is painfully relevant after 30 years.' --New York Times

'Dense, highly measured, intensely imagistic... A book one must admire for its profound seriousness, for its scorched-earth poetics and for its rendering of a lost world.' --Douglas Kennedy, The Times

'[Le Clezio's] tales have epic and exotic qualities...he writes with a moral seriousness and engagement... These stories of displacement and exile are both timely and epic... This is one of Le Clezio's major works... It reveals the history of colonial France in the Arab world.'
--Andrew Hussey, Financial Times --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description

The international bestseller, by the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature 2008, available for the first time in English translation.

Hailed by the Swedish Academy as Le Clézio's 'definitive breakthrough as a novelist', Desert is an epic novel that spans the twentieth century and ranges across two continents, from the North African desert to the streets of Marseilles.

--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
