Sample text

6 Far from being a conventional narrative of any genre, the book uses the voice of a hallucinating first-person narrator who is both anti-Semitic and Jewish and navigates wildly in time and place, France and Israel being two important points of reference. La Ronde de nuit (Night Rounds) (1969) and Les Boulevards de ceinture (Ring Roads) (1972), his next two novels, continue to evoke, openly, if in a slightly more restrained manner, the world of the occupation. Often described as centred on the problematic figure of his father, a Jew who survived in the Paris of the occupation by associating with black-marketeers and collaborators, these books form the first phase of the novelist’s production.

Words, utterances, genres – even the genre of genres, the novel itself – preserve their histories, and they do so in the same way that their histories are established in the first place: in their uptake and reproduction from one speaker or writer to the next: A genre is always the same and yet not the same, always old and new simultaneously. Genre is reborn and renewed at every new stage in the development of literature and in every individual work of a given genre. This constitutes the life of the genre.
