It is the best of good fortune to encounter Pascal Quignard.

Reading him, one enters directly into an inner exploration ranging over the world and its transformations and millennia, graced with the companionship of a great guide.

Pascal Quignard is one of the great explorers of our inner world, it's history, it's continuity, it's echoes. THE SILENT CROSSING continues from the reflections in SEX AND TERROR and his Goncourt Prize winning, THE ROVING SHADOWS. Here he moves further into the interstic

An alternative title for this book could be Meditations on Death because save for that (and at times reading and/or boats) there doesn't seem to be much of a running theme through this book but rather each of the "chapters" is usually VERY short and doesn't often seem connected to the chapters before or after it. This is the first book I've read by Pascal Quignard so I have no idea if this is his typical style or not but it was odd to read.

Когда-то, относительно недавно, Паскаль Киньяр стал лауреатом престижной французской премии в области литературы. С той поры минуло достаточное количество лет, но звание лауреата той премии к нему приклеилось основательно, будто сообщая читателю о положительных моментах творчества Киньяра. Вполне может оказаться и так, если верить благостному назначению премий вообще, вручаемых порой просто от безысходности, когда надо кому-то её дать. Безусловно, изредка премии уходят в достойные руки. Но чаще… ...more

Icreíble escritura con una lógica perfecta e incomprensible. Cada tema va llevando al otro, sin quererlo, pero con la seguridad de que no podía ser de otra forma. Descubrí a Quignard con este libro y me he vuelto fanática absoluta. Me quedé con sed de leer más y más de esta maravilla.
