This novel follows a young sailor at large in the fetid port of Brest. Querelle is an assassin, thief and traitor. His superior officer, the brothel keeper's husband, is a murderer in hiding. All which lead to a series of violent and shocking adventures. A beautiful new edition of Jean Genet's classic work, which includes a new introduction by Jon Savage.'One of the great writers of our times.' Sunday TelegraphQuerelle, a young sailor at large in the port of Brest, is an object of illicit desire to his diary-keeping superior officer, Lieutenant Seblon. He is coveted, too, by a corrupt policeman, Mario, and gives himself freely both to brothel-keeper Madame Lysiane and to her husband. But Querelle is a thief and a murderer - not a man to be trusted or trifled with.
