Jealousy & in the Labyrinth



A collection of two remarkable short novels that epitomize the project of the nouveau roman, Jealousy and In the Labyrinth brings the reader into a world where physical space and time bend and change, where a jalousie window blind resonates with the envy of a jealous husband, and where a soldier making a journey finds himself moving in circular time.

Praise for Alain Robbe-Grillet:

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

"Robbe-Grillet is important because he has attacked the last bastion of the traditional art of writing: the organization of literary space"--Roland Barthes

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

"Robbe-Grillet was a master at conveying human misunderstanding."--Bernard-Henri Lévy

"I doubt that fiction as art can any longer be seriously discussed without Robbe-Grillet."--New York Times

"Jealousy . . . is a technical masterpiece, impeccably contrived."--New York Times Book Review

"In the Labyrinth is better than an excellent novel: it is a great work of literature."--Maurice Nadeau, France-Observateur

"A highly emotional experience for the reader . . . Robbe-Grillet will take his place in world literature as a successor of Balzac and Proust."--Parade of Books, on In the Labyrinth
