Project for a Revolution in New Yorkby Alain Robbe-Grillet, Richard Howard (Translator)
Part prophecy and part erotic fantasy, this classic tale of otherworldly depravity features New York itselfor a foreigner's nightmare of New Yorkas its true protagonist. Set in the towers and tunnels of the quintessential American city, Alain Robbe-Grillet's novel turns this urban space into a maze where politics bleeds into perversion, revolution into sadism, activist into criminal, vice into artand back again. Following the logic of a movie half-glimpsed through a haze of drugs and alcohol, Project for a Revolution in New York is a Sadean reverie that bears an alarming resemblance to the New York, and the United States, that have actually come into being.
