A collection of two remarkable short novels that epitomize the project of the nouveau roman, Jealousy and In the Labyrinth brings the reader into a world where physical space and time bend and change, where a jalousie window blind resonates with the envy of a jealous husband, and where a soldier making a journey finds himself moving in circular time.
