Desolation PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Desolation free pdf Samuel Perlman, the elderly narrator of Yasmina Reza's deliriously dyspeptic novel, is surrounded by happy people. His wife Nancy is thrilled to be a member of the human race. His grown son is content crisscrossing the world to "sample exotic fruit with the savages." But Samuel himself refuses to be happy and his attempt to explain his refusal (half to his son and half to himself) generates an epic, blasphemous, and hilarious rant against the compromises of his life. Whether he is recounting his pal Lionel's heroic battle against impotence- lamenting the loss of his great love, the irresistible Marisa Botton- or pondering the possibility of a new love in the person of one Genevieve Abramowitz, the droll, irascible Perlman is one of the great talkers of contemporary fiction. And Desolation""is one of the most dazzling performances ever written for one voice.
