Tristan is a bit of a hip and coming guy on the French philosophical scene.
He wrote a quite lengthy treatise on ontology called Objet et forme at the wee age of 31.

He has also written a number of novels, some of which have been rewarded with French decorations.
This is his debut novel, an evocation of the Parisian gay scene in the early days of the AIDS-epidemic.

To be fair, I've got 50 pages left to read and up till now the book didn't really do much to me.

Do you recommend it?


If you are interested in the influence of the Soviet Union - upon until Stalin - on middle and eastern Europe in particular - and its grasp on intellectual life in a more general sense -, I would indeed recommend it.
Milosz' tale is a balanced mix of personal experience and more distanced reflection by a capable thinker and writer.
