Le Clezio, J.M.G.
New York: Atheneum, 1964. First American Edition of the Nobel Prize- winning author's first book. Octavo. Near fine in a very good dust jacket that shows a chip to the foot of the spine. Signed by the author on the title page.
Le Clezio won the 2008 Nobel Prize in Literature as an "author of new departures, poetic adventure and sensual ecstasy, explorer of a humanity beyond and below the reigning civilization." The Interrogation follows the interior adventure of solitary young man, Adam Pollo, who concentrates and discovers ways of experiencing as animals, trees. "Le Clézio's verbal felicity is amazing.... we come away awed by his skill in manipulating language and dazzled by his ability to create with words vividly impressionistic paintings" (The New York Times Book Review).
