Sartre's greatest novel â and existentialism's key text â now introduced by James Wood.
Nausea is the story of Antoine Roquentin, a French writer who is horrified at his own existence. In impressionistic, diary form he ruthlessly catalogs his every feeling and sensation. His thoughts culminate in a pervasive, overpowering feeling of nausea which âspreads at the bottom of the viscous puddle, at the bottom of our time â the time of purple suspenders and broken chair seats; it is made of wide, soft instants, spreading at the edge, like an oil stain.â
Winner of the 1964 Nobel Prize in Literature (though he declined to accept it), Jean-Paul Sartre â philosopher, critic, novelist, and dramatist â holds a position of singular eminence in the world of French letters. La NausÃ©e, his first and best novel, is a landmark in Existential fiction and a key work of the twentieth century.
