Promotional Information

First published in 1939 to little fanfare, Tropisms was ahead of its time and finally received the recognition it deserved when it was republished in 1957 at the height of the nouveau roman movement, of which it is now considered a precursor.

About the Author

Born in Russia, Nathalie Sarraute (1900-99) moved as a child to Paris, where she later trained as a lawyer, before devoting herself to literature and becoming one of the figureheads of the nouveau roman movement.

Reviews

Sarraute has cracked open the 'smooth and hard' surface of the traditional characters in order to discover the endless vibrations of moods and sentiments, the tremors of a never-ending series of earthquakes in the microcosm of the self. -- Hannah Arendt
