About the Author

Henri Bosco (1888-1976) was a French writer who was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature four times. His family was of Provençal, Ligurian, and Piedmontese origin, and much of his work focused on Provençal life.

Joyce Zonana is a writer and literary translator. She is the author of a memoir, Dream Homes: From Cairo to Katrina, an Exile's Journey, and her writing has been published in Hudson Review, Signs, and Meridians, among other publications. She received an ALTA Emerging Translator Mentorship for her translation of Malicroix.

Reviews

"Readers partial to philosophical tangents will find much to enjoy here. . . . [A] work of tremendous lyricism." --Kirkus

"[A] gothic historical par excellence . . . Bosco's atmospheric investigation of the relationship between environment and mentality successfully merges haunted-house tropes and high modernism." --Publishers Weekly

"In this vast prose-poem . . . the author takes the time to show the harrowing of space in which the house is to live like an anguished heart. . . . The real drama of Malicroix is an ordeal by solitude." --Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Space
