Product description


"A marvelously warped book. . . .' -- New York Times

"A vividly intense and almost palpably immediate work of imagination." -- Irish Times

"I think BERG is an excellent answer to all those who think reading novels is a waste of time." -- Books & Bookmen

"If you don't read it then you're not interested in the present and possible future of the English novel." -- Scotsman

"The style is eclectic enough to remind the reader of the New Wave, Beckett, Pinter, and Freud with a headache." -- Library Journal

About the Author

Ann Quin, one of the best kept secrets of British experimental writing, has garnered comparisons to such diverse writers as Samuel Beckett and Nathalie Sarraute. Before her death in 1973, she published four novels, including "Berg" and "Passages". In 1964 she became the first female recipient of the D. H. Lawrence Fellowship which allowed her to travel to the U.S., a trip that provided the basis for "Tripticks".
