 Synopsis  Reviews  Information
The characters in "Prehistoric Times "remind us of the inhabitants of Samuel Beckett's world: dreamers who in their savage and deductive folly try to modify reality. In an entirely original voice--full of burlesque variations, accelerations, and ruptures--Eric Chevillard asks luminous and playful questions about who we really are. Winner of the 2003 Prix Wepler for "Le Vaillant petit tailleur," Eric Chevillard is one of the most inventive authors writing in French today. He is also the author of "On the Ceiling," "The Crab Nebula," and "Demolishing Nisard."
