About this product
- DescriptionEven 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 French Resistance at sixteen, a friend to Jean-Paul Sartre and a lover to Simone de Beauvoir, and the director of movies including 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 vel, 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. Filmmaker 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.
- Author BiographyClaude Lanzmann is a French writer and the director of a number of films, including the nine-and-a-half-hour classic Shoah (1985), which was described by The Washington Post as the film event of the century and is regarded internationally as a historical and cinematic breakthrough.
