The Patagonian Hare: A Memoir

The Patagonian Hare: A Memoir

Claude Lanzmann

ISBN: 9780374230043

Written in precise, rich prose of rare beauty, organized--like human memory--in interconnected fragments that eschew conventional chronology, this book describes in detail the making of Lanzmann's seminal film "Shoah--The Patagonian Hare" and is a work of art, more significant and more ambitious than mere memoir.

"Even if I lived a hundred lives, I still wouldn't be exhausted." These words capture the intensity of the experiences of Claude Lanzmann, a man whose acts have always been a negation of resignation: a member of the Resistance at sixteen, a friend to Jean-Paul Sartre and a lover to Simone de Beauvoir, and the director of one of the most important films in the history of cinema, "Shoah." In these pages, Lanzmann composes a hymn to life that flows from memory yet has the rhythm of a novel, as tumultuous as it is energetic. "The Patagonian Hare "is the story of a man who has searched at every moment for existential adventure, who has committed himself deeply to what he believes in, and who has made his life a battle."""The Patagonian Hare," a number-one bestseller in France, has been translated into Spanish, German, Italian, Hebrew, Polish, Dutch, and Portuguese. Claude Lanzmann's brilliant memoir has been widely acclaimed as a masterpiece, was hailed as "a true literary and historic event" in the pages of "Le Monde," and was awarded the prestigious Welt-Literaturpreis in Germany.
