Thanks everyone - so far I've read Nausea which I liked in parts. Will try The Wall soon enough.

Anyone read Louis Guilloux? Don't think Black Blood is available on translation.

one year passes...

A film of the trilogy was made for TV in 1970 (good ol' Beeb!) and gets a re-screen at the BFI today.

Won't be able to go but has anyone seen it?

three years pass...

I picked this up yesterday:

These are bits of fiction that the editors believe slot into Sartre's existentialism - even if many of the stories predates this.

So there are passages from Karamzov, Tolstoy, Musil (The Moosbrugger sketch from MwQ), Proust. What caught my eye was a story by Pavese (called Suicides which I know I'll never come across).

More on the intro later, have yet to finish it.

Can see the inner monologues getting annoying.

In that clip I can see the guy is ashamed to buy sex. Don't know if I need to hear it.
