Detailed Product Description

New York, Pantheon, 1960, 1st US edition. 157 pp. Gold cloth hardcover with chipped dust jacket. Book is near fine. Very Good overall. 

A twentieth century classic. Translation and Introduction by Roger Shattuck and Postface by Vera Daumal. Mount Analogue combines the author's poetic gifts and philosophical accomplishments in a manner that is both entertaining to read and profound to contemplate. The novel is a representation of the author's own spiritual quest, transposed into fictional form, and was published posthumously in 1952.

Among other things, this is an allegory for the journey of life, as well as a marvelous tale in which the narrator/author, one of an intrepid company of eight, sets sail in the yacht Impossible to search for Mount Analogue, the solid, geographically located, albeit hidden, peak that reaches inexorably towards heaven - as Mount Olympus reached to the home of the Greek gods, or Mount Sinai to the presence of Yahweh.

Daumal, often described as one of the most gifted literary figures in twentieth century France, died before the novel was completed, providing an uncanny one-way quality to the journey that the reader cannot help but share.
