Inferno: Alone & Other Writings

4.06 of 5 stars 4.06  ·  rating details  ·  36 ratings  ·  1 review
The narrator (ostensibly Strindberg, although his narrative variably coheres with and diverges from historical truth), spends most of the novel in Paris, isolated from his wife (Frida Uhl), children, and friends.
