About the Author

Nathalie Sarraute (1900 99) was a French novelist, essayist, dramatist, and critic. Her works have been translated into more than thirty languages.

Reviews

Sarraute shows us in small immediate moves how a person can be pushed toward marriage or murder.
The book has such intensity that it feels imperative...Her work is immersive and consuming; when you look up from the page you see and feel the world differently.--Pasha Malla
Sarraute has cracked open the 'smooth and hard' surface of the traditional characters in order to discover the endless vibrations of moods and sentiments, the tremors of a never-ending series of earthquakes in the microcosm of the self.--Hannah Arendt
Sarraute's novels are as witty and formally exact as anything of the kind ever written in French.
Tropisms--something like 'prose poems'--as Sarraute calls them that--this is her form! Her texture is anti-novelistic, though she's decided to write 'novels' and launched an important critique of the novel on the basis of her method.--Susan Sontag
