Über diesen Titel


1986 Lester, Orpen Dennys Limited hardcover. ISBN: 0886191483. D. M. Thomas (The White Hotel). The third in a trilogy following Ararat and Swallow. The story of a Welsh journalist as he follows a mysterious woman through Russia.

From Library Journal:

Sphinx is the third in Thomas's trilogy of Russian novels, following Ararat ( LJ 3/1/83) and Swallow ( LJ 11/15/83) . Its fragmented plot concerns a Welsh journalist named Lloyd George and his obsession with a mysterious, sphinxlike woman whom he meets while traveling through Russia in 1982. George both hopes and fears that Nadia may be a "swallow," a KGB operative whose mission is to seduce visiting Westerners. If she is, at least he will get to sleep with her! The book itself is a sphinxlike puzzle that is part screenplay, part novel, and part poem, with Thomas paying allusive homage to the ghost of Pushkin throughout. Whether the digressive text forms a coherent whole or is merely a clever pastiche of things Russian is not immediately clear. Nevertheless, Thomas's many fans will line up for this one, and even newcomers will be seduced. Edward B. St. John, Loyola Marymount Univ. Lib., Los Angeles
