Overview


The Church, one of Céline's few dramatic works, was written in 1933, just one year after his great masterpiece Voyage au bout de la nuit (Journey to the End of Night). The play is a highly satirical work that mocks almost all races and religions, typical, in part, of Céline's diatribes. Yet here also is a work of great wit, sharing Céline's great comedic-tragic vision of humankind. One of the most noted writers of the 20th century, Céline is also the author of Death on the Installment Plan, North, Rigadoon, Castle to Castle and Ballets without Music, without Dancers, without Anything, the last recently published by Green Integer.
