Description

‘An irresistibly brilliant examination of modern conscience’ The New York Times Jean-Baptiste Clamence is a soul in turmoil. Over several drunken nights in an Amsterdam bar, he regales a chance acquaintance with his story.

The Fall might have been called “The Last Judgement” ‘Olivier Todd
