Enveloped in a sense of surrealism and showing a complete disregard for conventional rules of composition, this novel portrays the tragedy of the artist through Lucien---a painter who is fascinated with the works of van Gogh. Expressing a pre-existentialist idea of the human condition, humanity appears lost between two infinite extremes in a universe with no rhyme or reason, condemned to an absurd life of angst and loneliness. Lucien is doomed to suffer in his eternal search for an ideal he will never reach.
