9781852428563: Sniper

“A terse and unflinchingly honest novel about war and man’s inhumanity to men and women . . . brutal, bestial and highly disturbing.”—William Boyd

In an unnamed country, a group of fugitives flees their native village after an attack by the army. Their houses bombed and ransacked, their husbands, children, and parents killed, they are seeking sanctuary. Meanwhile, a sniper hides, picking off innocents in a besieged city. His apocalyptic, hallucinatory voice provides the novel with its main themes, the insanity of war and the terrifying exhilaration it excites in its perpetrators.

Novelist and playwright Pavel Hak was born in Czechoslovakia in 1962. Exiled in France in 1986, he studied philosophy at the Sorbonne University. Sniper is his first book to be published in English. He lives in Paris.

About the Author :

Novelist and playwright Pavel Hak was born in Czechoslovakia in 1962. Exiled in France in 1986, he studied philosophy at the Sorbonne. Afterwards he began writing in French. Sniper, his second novel, is his first book to be published in English. He has also recently written a play 'Lutte a Mort'(Death Struggle) 2004.

Review :

"'One hundred pages of rage and fierceness, which are amongst the strongest ever read. A brilliantly cut diamond which leaves you breathless in wonder at the power of fiction... Sniper is a passionate reflection on war: the war that transforms ordinary people into formidable butchers' Telerama 'His first novel, Safari, was unbelievably obscene and savage. Sniper is even more in your face but strangely the author finds ways of making it bearable' Liberation 'With Sniper, Pavel Hak continues his war against stories that are told to us, novels without body, texts devoid of the real, behind which hide storytellers. He wants: "No more disinformation, no more falsified news, no more bending of reality" ' Les Inrockuptibles Translated by Gerry Feehlly"
