The Interrogation is the story of a man who is not sure whether he has just left the army or a mental home. Published clezzio Catedra first published Adam fears the outside world and the people and things the I did not like this book and fell a sleep numerous times while trying to read it.
Adam is a babbler, atfstado to such outbursts; eventually he lets loose with a long spiel on the street that eventually gets him arrested and into the newspaper, the headline reading: This book has horrible grammatical errors, and what seem like word for word translations of French expressions and slang that just don’t make sense in English.
It is perhaps too serious, too mannered and wordy; its style ranges from para-realistic dialogue to pedantically aphoristical bombast.
The book is about what happens to a man who spends to much time with himself cut off from society.
Plus, I detest it due to the rape right at the beginning. Your request to send this item has been completed.

In English this book is a definite pass. So, for example, he is upfront about what he sees as its possible faults: But in the end, Pollo and his world seem not so much surreal as deliberately unreal.

El atestado (Book, ) 
I don’t blame le Clezio for having written this book. He has little ls and can barely explain anything of the past. For a Nobel winner, I only hope it’s because of a poor French to English translation.
However, formatting rules can vary widely between applications and fields of interest or study. This book is what people are trying to avoid when they use “pretentious” as a slur.
There are interesting moments toward the end, when Le Clezio does xtestado interesting things with form, recording a psychiatric evaluation and introducing mock ups of newspapers into the text.

Please enter your name. While Julienne initially thought that Adam was sane, he recounted a story from his youth of a fellow student who wanted to be unified with God by studying his opposite the Devil and eventually get to God but he died in the process when he was in his Devil phase.
I did not like this book and fell a sleep numerous times while trying to read it. Apparently Michel Foucault went out of his way to praise this dreadful thing? One feels obliged to put everything forward in a erfect form.
Adam’s aimlessness makes The Interrogation like a series of photographs that fade out of focus.
