Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 187937854X, Paperback)Fiction. Translated from the Italian by Jamie Richards. Translated into English for the first time, JELLYFISH (original title: "Meduse") is an experimental novel that takes the reader to the farthest reaches of alienation and despair. Upon its appearance in 2003, major critics in Italy hailed it as a classic. "An original work, a scream, that emerges as the testimony of a resentful, mournful reflection of the self and the world. [JELLYFISH]'s language brings to light sensations and states of being that could never be reached through mere reflection"--Antonio Debenedetti. "A text that boasts an entirely uncommon literary power and stylistic rigor. Its point of departure is not the trivial; rather, its inventiveness draws upon a range of readings from the classical to the modern, from voyages to the great beyond to Beckett's continuous speech, even to Kafka's 'The Burrow.'"--Cesare Barboli.
