Description
Nobel Prize winner Elias Canetti's only work of fiction, Auto-da-Fé put him squarely in the ranks of major European writers. It is the story of Peter Kien, a scholarly recluse who lives within his great library, and chronicles his destruction through the instrument of the illiterate, brutish housekeeper whom he marries. Canetti has often been compared to Kafka, but this unforgettable treatment of the horror of the modern stands as a complete original.

"Savage, subtle, beautifully mysterious—one of the few great novels of the century."—Iris Murdoch

"In Auto-da-Fé no one is spared. Professor and furniture salesman, doctor, housekeeper, and thief all get it in the neck. The remorseless quality of the comedy builds one of the most terrifying literary worlds of the century."—Salman Rushdie
