    I don’t know a description more striking, more haunting, as the erotic despair of the hero, [Max Aue] that makes me consider that the birth of this book owes much to psychoanalysis and that this would ultimately the reason for its rejection. It will however not consider this as an obscene display of which serve the plot to show the vicissitudes of an erotic end gross facade excuse justifying the desire to distract them. Because of the prevailing tone back on all the work that it becomes unbearable retroactively. Jonathan Littell introduces us to this tragic condition, behind the glossy look with which we present by appearing insensitive to what it involved. For me, literature, the true one, is on the side of Littell.
