La Jalousie - Alain Robbe-Grillet

Product Description

In his most famous and perhaps most typical work, Robbe-Grillet explores his principle preoccupation, the meaning of reality.

The novel is set on a tropical banana plantation and the action is seen through the eyes of a narrator who never appears in person, never speaks and never acts. He is a point of observation, his personality only to be guessed at, watching every movement of the other two characters' actions and events as they flash like moving pictures across the distorting screen of a jealous mind.

The result is one of the most important and influential books of our time, a completely integrated masterpiece that has already become a classic.

The book is reprinted in a new format as part of the Routledge Foreign Literature Classics series.
