Journal Entry 1 by tabby-cat-owner from Phoenix, Arizona USA on Wednesday, February 22, 2012

This book has not been rated.

First published in France in 1928. The principal narrative is an account of the author's relationship with a girl in the city of Paris, the story of an obsessional presence haunting his life. The first person narrative is supplemented by forty-four photographs which form an integral part of the work--pictures of various "surreal" people, places, and objects which the author visits or is haunted by in Nadja's presence and which inspire him to meditate on their reality or lack of it.

The Nadja of the book is a girl, but like Bertrand Russell's definition of electricity as "not so much a thing as a way things happen." Nadja is not so much a person as the way she makes people behave. She has been described as a state of mind, a feeling about reality, a kind of vision, and the reader sometimes wonders whether she exists at all. Yet it is Nadja who gives form and structure to the novel.

Translated by Richard Howard.

Journal Entry 6 by Danielle23 at Sunderland, Tyne and Wear United Kingdom on Sunday, October 27, 2013

6 out of 10

I'm not sure what I thought of this one. It just seemed a little bit 'meh' for want of a better word. The relationship he has with Nadja all seems innocent enough, although strange with her clear mental health issues, until we hear about his wife. Hmmm, not quite sure I fully understood what this was about but it was a quick read and another to be ticked off the list.

Back to the library.
