Description

November may be said to have four protagonists: a group of night-shift workers in Southeast France; their friends, relatives, lovers, acquaintances; the factory in which they work; the work itself. The focus is on two and a half hours during one evening in November 1976 and the plastic die-casting workshop where the men are employed. Staggering in scope, November is a virtuoso performance--a contemporary take on the classical modernist novel, anatomizing the ways we live, think, and labor: what we've lost, and what we're losing.

Review quote

"The novel whose sequel is in process is reminiscent at points of Jean Eustache s 1973 film The Mother and the Whore: complex, deep, and seemingly unending." -Kirkus Reviews"
