Preface by Michael Holroyd. The Polyglots is the story of an eccentric Belgian family living in the Far East in the uncertain years after World War I and the Russian Revolution. The tale is recounted by their dryly conceited young English relative, Captain Georges Hamlet Alexander Diabologh, who comes to stay with them during a military mission. Teeming with bizarre characters�depressives, obsessives, paranoiacs, hypochondriacs, and sex maniacs�Gerhardie paints a brilliantly absurd world where the comic and the tragic are profoundly and irrevocably entwined. 328 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Fiction; United States; Fiction; Inventory No: 231158.
