Reader's note

Jean Genet's timeless novel The Thief's Journal is a well-known and much-loved classic. In this most famous book, Genet charts his progress through Europe and the 1930s in rags, hunger, contempt, fatigue and vice. Spain, Italy, Austria, Poland ,Nazi Germany, Belgium…. Everywhere the pattern is the same; bars, dives, flop-houses, robbery, prison and expulsion. This is a voyage of discovery beyond all moral I laws; the expression of a philosophy of perverted vice, the working out of an aesthetic of degradation. This is a lovely classic story that would make a wonderful addition to any home collection.
