The Narrow Waters

Julien Gracq Ingeborg M. Kohn (translator)

In fluid, associative prose, Julien Gracq navigated again—this time in memory—the magical Evre and the terrain through which it coursed in his youth. The Narrow Waters is a synaptic meditation on Beginning and Ending whose inquiries and visions flow, and sometimes cascade, through a landscape of phantoms, flora, and fairy tale.
