"You Are There is set on a small island off the coast of France, where unscrupulous landowners have succeeded in overtaking the land from the last heir of a previously wealthy family.

His seemingly hopeless struggle to recover his birthright becomes complicated as the government sees a way of using his plight for the sake of political expediency, and the romantic intervention of the daughter of one of the landowners (who has her own sordid history with the politician) engenders further difficulties, culminating in an apocalyptic, hallucinatory finale"--Publisher's web site

Journey to the end of the night by Louis-Ferdinand Céline( Book )

17 editions published between 1988 and 2006 in French and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peu de livres ont une aussi grande puissance de vision que Voyage au bout de la nuit.Vision intense : celle de la révélation de la misère, de la guerre, de la maladie sans fin, de la mort. La phrase se concentre, repère tout, ne pardonne rien. Vision itinérante et prodigieusement variée ensuite : on part de la place de Clichy, on se retrouve dans divers massacres à cheval, puis dans une Afrique écrasante, puis noyé à New York, à Détroit, puis de nouveau dans la banlieue de Paris (la banlieue de Céline, cercle minutieux de l'enfer !), puis dans les environs de Toulouse, et enfin dans un asile psychiatrique pas comme les autres.La mort au épart et à l'arrivée. La symphonie agitée de la nuit infinie pour rien. Le héros métaphysique de Céline est ce petit homme toujours en route, entre Chaplin et Kafka, mais plus coriace qu'eux, vous le redécouvrez ici, perplexe, rusé, perdu, ahuri, agressé de partout, bien réveillé quand même, vérifiant sans cesse l'absurdité, la bêtise, la méchanceté universelles dans un monde de cauchemar terrible et drôle.Céline lui-même a comparé son style aux bandes dessinées, aux " comics ". C'était pour dire qu'il allait toujours au vif du sujet, au nerf de la moindre aventure. Ce Tardi-Céline l'aurait ravi. L'?il traverse le récit comme une plume hallucinée, on voit le déplacement sans espoir mais plus fort, dans son rythme de mots et d'images, que tout désespoir. Il faut relire Céline en le voyant. Tardi lui rouvre l'espace.Le grouillement et la simplicité des épisodes et du jugement qu'il porte se redéploient. Céline a dit la vérité du siècle : ce qui est là est là, irréfutable, débile, monstrueux, rarement dansant ou vivable. Le Voyage recommence. Les éclairs dans la nuit aussi
