Description
An old, deaf servant is interrogated regarding unspecified crimes that may or may not have taken place at his master's French chateau, in this Prix des Critiques–winning 1962 book, lauded by Samuel Beckett as "one of the most important novels of the last ten years." The servant's replies—which are by turns comic, 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 he can be believed.
