COME KILL WITH ME.
Edition: First printing.
Indianapolis: Bobbs-Merrill, (1976) dj. Hardcover first edition - Although Kassak was both very popular in France and an award winning writer there, with several films based on his books, this is the first (and only) book by this author to appear in English. On the one hand, it is a very funny story of misguided love, murderous errors and unforeseen consequences - but underneath there is a black humor which is lucid, cruel and subtle. Kassak, in talking of his work, said "I think of the mediocre type who finds himself back to the wall.Ê He is trapped, it is a crisis situation. Then his most banal feelings will be exacerbated to the point that he is going to kill, and at once his whole little conventional universe gets into a vicious circle." Translated from the French by Martin Sokolinsky. 193 pp. ISBN: 0-672519755.
Condition: Fine in a very near fine dust jacket. Surprisingly uncommon.
