Book Summary of Death On Credit

(Paperback)

When C line's first novel, Journey to the End of the Night was first published in 1932 it created an instant scandal, being extravagantly praised by its supporters and savagely attacked by its horrified opponents. Four years later came the sequel, Death on Credit. Both were a new kind of novel, frank about the author's thoughts and actions in a ways that readers had never encountered, ultra-realistic, and full of incidents that could not possibly be true to life, characters that stretched the imagination in spite of their having obviously been drawn from life.

In Death on Credit, Ferdinand Bardamu - C line's alter ego - is a doctor in Paris, treating the poor who seldom pay him but who take advantage of his availability. The action goes back in time to earlier memories and often moves into fantasy, and the style becomes deliberately rougher and sentences disintegrate to catch the flavour of the teeming world of everyday Parisian tragedies: the struggle to make a living, illness, venereal disease, the sordid stories of families whose destiny is governed by their own stupidity, malice, lust and greed.

About The Author:


Louis-Ferdinand C line was one of the most controversial writers of the twentieth century, a writer who mixed realism with imaginative fantasy, and like his contemporary Henry Miller, an iconoclast who shocked and frightened many of his readers. C line, the pen name of L.F. Destouches, was a doctor in poor Parisian districts whose experience of the misery and chicanery of the poor gave him a jaundiced view of humanity that he poured into prose, that is comic, as well as often frightening and obscene.
