1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The inquisitory by Robert Pinget ( Book )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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."--BOOK JACKET
The bald soprano by Eugène Ionesco ( Visual )
4 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An operatic production of Ionesco's absurdist play. Since its 1950 debut in Paris, the play has been hailed as an "intensely amusing mixture of social satire, Alice in Wonderland-type logic, verbal delirium and surrealist farce." For the fiftieth anniversary of the founding work of this Theater of the Absurb, the Center for Contemporary Opera has adapted the play, featuring music by American composer Martin Kalmanoff and state-of-the-art video techniques
