The Thief's Journal


Product Description

A beautiful new edition of Jean Genet's classic work - part of a revitalising repackage of all of Genet's novels for 2019, with a new introduction by Ahdaf Soueif.

The Thief's Journal is perhaps Jean Genet's most authentically autobiographical novel; an account of his impoverished travels across 1930s Europe. The narrator is guilty of vagrancy, petty theft and prostitution, but his writing transforms such degradations into an inverted moral code, where criminality and delinquency become heroic. With a holy trinity of his own making - homosexuality, theft and betrayal - in The Thief's Journal Genet produced a startlingly powerful novel without precedent.
