Translated from French by Vladimer Rakviashvili

 

Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clézio’s debut novel tells the story of Adam Pollo, a troubled man who tries to escape from his everyday life by living in solitude. Days pass by as he stares at the landscape seen from his window. At times, Pollo does leave his home for the city where he visits some cafes or the beach. One day he begins to live a life within the society. However, the real world makes him uneasy and the normal everyday life terrifies him. Objects, facts and landscapes carry pale and dull appearance for Pollo. The world around him is almost unknown. In the end, he is captured by madness caused by the urban horrors…

 

The novel written at the age of 23 brought Le Clézio a great success, The Interrogation was shortlisted for the Prix Goncourt and awarded Prix Renaudot in 1963.
