An atmospheric audio journey through Louis-Ferdinand Céline’s 1932 novel Journey to the End of the Night.

Céline’s masterpiece—colloquial, polemic, hyper realistic—boils over with bitter humour and revulsion at society’s idiocy and hypocrisy: Journey to the End of the Night is a literary symphony of cruelty and violence that hurtles through the improbable travels of the petit bourgeois (and largely autobiographical) antihero, Bardamu: from the trenches of WWI, to the African jungle, to New York, to the Ford Factory in Detroit, and finally to life in Paris as a failed doctor.
