Read full description of the books:
Publicado no início da década de 30, este romance de Louis Ferdinand Céline, foi um soco no estômago, não só na literatura francesa, como na civilização, falando grosso modo. Se o uso de uma linguagem popular crua e obscena foi um choque, por outro lado, Céline não poupava nada nem ninguém. Bardamu, o narrador, anda pela Primeira Grande Guerra, por África, pela América, pelos bairros populares de Paris, descendo ao mais baixo das pessoas e das coisas. A mesquinhez embrutecida dos militares, os comerciantes que roubam para enriquecerem depressa, os operários que levam uma vida mecânica, monótona, destituída de sentido, os dias que se arrastam penosamente, etc., etc.. O inferno da vida antes do inferno da morte, numa escrita sublime.
A tradução, magnífica e revista para esta nova edição, é de Aníbal Fernandes.

Read information about the authorLouis-Ferdinand Céline, pen name of Dr. Louis-Ferdinand Destouches, is best known for his works Voyage au bout de la nuit (Journey to the End of the Night), and Mort à crédit (Death on the Installment Plan). His highly innovative writing style using Parisian vernacular, vulgarities, and intentionally peppering ellipses throughout the text was used to evoke the cadence of speech.
Louis-Ferdinand Destouches was raised in Paris, in a flat over the shopping arcade where his mother had a lace store. His parents were poor (father a clerk, mother a seamstress). After an education that included stints in Germany and England, he performed a variety of dead-end jobs before he enlisted in the French cavalry in 1912 two years before the outbreak of the First World War in 1914. While serving on the Western Front he was wounded in the head and suffered serious injuries – a crippled arm and headaches that plagued him all his life – but also winning a medal of honour. Released from military service, he studied medicine and emigrated to the USA where he worked as a staff doctor at the newly build Ford plant in Detroit before returning to France and establishing a medical practice among the Parisian poor. Their experiences are featured prominently in his fiction.
Although he is often cited as one of the most influential and greatest writers of the twentieth century, he is certainly a controversial figure. After embracing fascism, he published three antisemitic pamphlets, and vacillated between support and denunciation of Hitler. He fled to Germany and Denmark in 1945 where he was imprisoned for a year and declared a national disgrace. He then received amnesty and returned to Paris in 1951.
Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., Henry Miller, William Burroughs, and Charles Bukowski have all cited him as an important influence.
