A propos de cet article

Octavo, boards. First edition. THE BRIDGE (1986), perhaps his finest early work, once again conflates the literal with "metaphorical" displacements treated with a knowing literalness characteristic of the work of late twentieth-century writers of significance, regardless of their marketing 'identity;' in this tale, a comatose man relives (or anticipates) his own life, which is represented in matrix form as an enormous bridge; among the interstices of this potent Icon he engages in a rather hilarious parody of sword-and-sorcery conventions." - John Clute and David Langford, SFE (online). The author's third book. Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 4A-17. Pringle, Modern Fantasy: The Hundred Best Novels 95. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#146440). N° de réf. du libraire 146440

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

The man who wakes up in the extraordinary world of a bridge has amnesia, and his doctor doesn't seem to want to cure him. Does it matter? Exploring the bridge occupies most of his days. But at night there are his dreams. Dreams in which desperate men drive sealed carriages across barren mountains to a bizarre rendezvous; an illiterate barbarian storms an enchanted tower under a stream of verbal abuse; and broken men walk forever over bridges without end, taunted by visions of a doomed sexuality.
Lying in bed unconscious after an accident wouldn't be much fun, you'd think. Oh yes? It depends who and what you've left behind.
Which is the stranger reality, day or night? Frequently hilarious and consistently disturbing, THE BRIDGE is a novel of outrageous contrasts, constructed chaos and elegant absurdities.
