From the Inside Flap

A provocative novel by the most influential living French writer, Recollections of the Golden Triangle is a tour de force: a literary thriller constructed of wildly diverse elements--fantasy and dream, erotic invention, and the stuff of popular fiction and movies taken to its farthest limits.

A secret door that is opened slightly by an electronic device, a beautiful hanged factory girl, a pale young aristocrat whose blood apparently nourishes his vampiric lover, the evil Dr. Morgan who conducts his experiments in "tertiary dream behavior," the beautiful and sinister women from the world of horror films, and the investigating police, who are not all what they seem to be, are just some of the ingredients of this intriguing new novel by the French master of the intellectual thriller, whose novels and films have effectively changed the way we can look at the "real" world today.

Recollections of the Golden Triangle challenges the reader to find his own meaning in its descriptions, clues, and contradictions, and to play detective by assembling the pieces of the fictional puzzle.

"Robbe-Grillet's theories constitute the most ambitious aesthetic program since Surrealism."--John Updike

"Alain Robbe-Grillet is the forerunner of a revolution more radical than Romanticism and Naturalism were in their time."--Claude Mauriac

"A sense of atmosphere and a power of representation that at best make one feel that one is looking over an artist's shoulder with one eye on the canvas and the other on the reality that he is sketching."--The Times (London)

"The master of the new novel and...the most radical writer of fiction now working in France, or perhaps anywhere."--Book Week

Alain Robbe-Grillet was born in 1922 in Brest, France. The Erasers, his first novel, was published in 1953, and as his next novels appeared--The Voyeur in 1955, Jealousy in 1957, In the Labyrinth in 1959, and La Maison de Rendez-vous in 1965--his importance as the chief spokesman for the noveau roman became apparent. He gives his own theories of the novel in a collection of essays, For a New Novel. Robbe-Grillet wrote the film script for Last Year at Marienbad.

Well.....I like this author, who is definitely not a normal person. And this book is really strange. I got into Robbe Grillet based on something James Sallis wrote (I think Sallis is terrific) and have enjoyed several of his books, but this one is really strange. Some people might think it is pornographic, perhaps both an attraction and the opposite, but I think it is so strange even that aspect becomes ephemeral. Anyway, not my favorite, and I am a broad reader with a high tolerance for weird writing.
