Author Info
Robert Pinget
Pinget took a law degree, then became a visual artist, and finally turned to fiction, writing avant-garde works in which there is no fixed reality or certainty. Pinget believed, with Robbe-Grillet, that "literature should be an exploration, but an exploration which itself creates its own significations as it proceeds."
From the Publisher
Editors Note The Inquisitory consists entirely of the interrogation of an old, deaf servant regarding unspecified crimes that may or may not have taken place at his master's French chateau.|The servant's replies - which are by turns comic, straightforward, angry, nostalgic, and disingenuous - hint at a variety of seedy events, including murder, orgies, tax fraud, and drug deals. Of course, the servant wasn't involved with any of these activities - if the reader chooses to believe him. In trying to convince the inquisitor of his innocence, the servant creates a web of half-truths, vague references, and glaring inconsistencies amid "forgotten" details, indicating that he may know more than he's letting on.
