When Celine's first novel, Journey to the End of the Night was first published in 1932, it created an instant scandal, being extravagantly praised by its supporters and savagely attacked by its horrified opponents. Four years later came the sequel, Death on Credit. Both were a new kind of novel, frank about the author's thoughts and actions in ways that readers had never encountered, ultra-realistic - and full of incidents that could not possibly be true to life - and characters that stretched the imagination.In Death on Credit, Ferdinand Bardamu, Celine's alter ego, is a doctor in Paris, treating the poor who seldom pay him but who take every advantage of his availability.

When Celine's first novel, Journey to the End of the Night was first published in 1932, it created an instant scandal, being extravagantly praised by its supporters and savagely attacked by its horrified opponents. Four years later came the sequel, Death on Credit. Both were a new kind of novel, frank about the author's thoughts and actions in ways that readers had never encountered, ultra-realistic - and full of incidents that could not possibly be true to life - and characters that stretched the imagination.In Death on Credit, Ferdinand Bardamu, Celine's alter ego, is a doctor in Paris, treating the poor who seldom pay him but who take every advantage of his availability. The action is not continuous but goes back in time to earlier memories and often moves into fantasy, especially in Bardamu's sexual escapades; the style becomes deliberately rougher and sentences disintegrate to catch the flavour of the teeming world of everyday Parisian tragedies, the struggle to make a living, illness, venereal disease, the sordid stories of families whose destiny is governed by their own stupidity, malice, lust and greed. This fascinating book by one of the greatest twentieth-century novelists is an unforgettable experience for the reader.

LOUIS-FERDINAND CELINE

LOUIS-FERDINAND CELINE

Novelista y médico francés de apellido real Destouches. Nacido en Courbevoie, en las afueras de París, en 1894, participó como voluntario en la I Guerra Mundial, en la que fue gravemente herido. Después de la guerra estudió medicina, y de 1924 a 1928 viajó en misiones por África y Estados Unidos por cuenta de la Sociedad de Naciones. Regresó a Francia y entró a formar parte de una clínica estatal en Clichy. Los puntos de vista exacerbados de Céline, y sus escritos antisemitas de fines de los años treinta, hicieron que se le acusara de colaboracionismo con los nazis, y tuvo que exiliarse en 1944. Finalmente fue perdonado por el gobierno francés, y volvió a París en 1950. Murió en 1961. Ver ficha del autor
