L'inquisitoire [roman by Robert Pinget( Book )

73 editions published between 1962 and 2003 in 6 languages and held by 1,117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Inquisitory consists entirely of the interrogation of an old, deaf servant regarding unspecified crimes that may or may not have taken place at his master's French chateau." "The servant's replies - which are by turns comic, straightforward, angry, nostalgic, and disingenuous - hint at a variety of seedy events, including murder, orgies, tax fraud, and drug deals. Of course, the servant wasn't involved with any of these activities - if the reader chooses to believe him. In trying to convince the inquisitor of his innocence, the servant creates a web of half-truths, vague references, and glaring inconsistencies amid "forgotten" details, indicating that he may know more than he's letting on."--Jacket

Mahu, or, The material by Robert Pinget( Book )

37 editions published between 1952 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Pinget's Mahu or The Material tells the story of Mahu, who, unlike his ambitious, successful brothers, is a lazy man who approaches the world around him with a defiant spirit and a witty outlook on life. Part of the reason for Mahu's laziness is that he may be nothing more than a character in a failing novel by his friend Latirail, a novel that is being overrun by characters invented by yet a different author" "The second half of this book consists of Mahu's strange and hilarious musings on everything from belly dancers to how he catches ideas from other people in the same way he catches germs."--Jacket

Monsieur Songe by Robert Pinget( Book )

33 editions published between 1982 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Escritos en la madurez literaria de Robert Pinget, a ratos perdidos entre el resto de su obra, "Señor Sueño", "Arado" y "El arnés" tienen como protagonista al señor Sueño, un jubilado que anota lo que siente y piensa, o lo que cree que ha pasado, no como si lo recordara, sino como si lo oyera. Ácido e irónico, a medio camino entre la prosa de su amigo Samuel Beckett y el humor de Buster Keaton, Pinget dio un peculiar encanto a esta novela (¿o diario?, ¿o colección de apotegmas?, ¿o borrador?), su inclasificable obra maestra. "Si fuera posible deslizar aquí algunas líneas pe- netrantes sobre el pasado del señor Sueño que dieran al personaje un interés retroactivo por así decirlo, se haría. Pero es imposible y la razón de ello no puede darse."

Graal flibuste by Robert Pinget( Book )

28 editions published between 1956 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This early work by the landmark Swiss author Robert Pinget is unlike any other he produced over his long career; indeed, there are few books by any writer with which it bears comparison--aside perhaps from the novels of Raymond Roussel or Denis Diderot. Graal Flibuste follows the progress of its narrator and his impudent coachman, Brindon, through a fantastical land peopled by strange creatures and stranger potentates, and filled with tall tales, mysteries, crimes, dilemmas, and deities . . . not least among whom is the terrible god Graal Flibuste himself" --
