Description

A beautiful new edition of Jean Genet's classic work, which includes a new introduction by Jon Savage. 'One of the great writers of our times.' Sunday Telegraph Querelle, a young sailor at large in the port of Brest, is an object of illicit desire to his diary-keeping superior officer, Lieutenant Seblon. He is coveted, too, by a corrupt policeman, Mario, and gives himself freely both to brothel-keeper Madame Lysiane and to her husband. But Querelle is a thief and a murderer - not a man to be trusted or trifled with. Arguably, Genet's most erotic novel.
