From the Publisher:
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.
Author Bio
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."
