He is a lonely man and he is more than a trifle bored. As he embarks on a new life — in a new apartment, with new possessions and new neighbours — he feels an initial relief at being his own man; but this period of mental calm is short-lived. Unable to overcome his need for routine and the sense of comfort it brings, he falls into a confined, unimaginative pattern of life.

His isolation is given up to repetitive, intense introspection, metaphysical anxieties and obsessive fears. We follow his existence over years, with time being scattered about, slowing down and speeding up, in congruence with his state of mind.

He was greatly interested in the solitude and insignificance of human existence, and modern feelings of alienation. He also felt a sense of wonderment and anguish at the strangeness of reality, and this is splendidly expressed in the mouth of the Hermit.

This novel, with its elements of magical realism, is a fascinating insight into a tortured mind, and compels reflection on mortality, free will, alienation, idealism and the ignorance of man.

Eugene Ionesco: In the light of mortality every motive looks mad

Ionesco has always been such a master of the banal that he has run the risk of seeming either trivial or merely satirical. Quite simply, Ionesco is afraid to die. I shouldn't be afraid of death, since I don't know what death is, and besides, haven't I said that I ought to give in and not fight it? To no avail. I jump out of bed, frightened out of my wits, I turn on the lights, run from one end of the room to the other, dash into the living room, turn on the lights there. When lie down I can't lie still; the same when I sit or stand. It is death that makes all human activities, not just bourgeois manners, absurd; in the light of mortality every motive looks mad.
