Genet, Jean

Jean Genet's last book is a little-known masterpiece from the writer celebrated by Le Matin as 'one of the greatest French prose poets of this century'.

Starting in 1970, Genet - petty thief, prostitute, modernist master - spent two years in the Palestinian refugee camps. Always an outcast himself, Genet was drawn to this displaced people and their cause, an attraction that was to prove as complicated as it was deep.

Prisoner of Love combines unflinching factual reportage with Genet's trademark playful literary style, revealing both his art and his humanity.
