The Necrophiliac is a queer book: a flawless delicacy of oblique irrationality. It's a fascinating dive into the abyss into which Gabrielle Wittkop has invited us. The loves of a necrophiliac-a real one-so abrupt, raw, direct, disturbing and yet capable of moving us to pity. An ode without a touch of complaisance or amorality to the icy beauty of the cold sexes and putrescent charms of bodies the colors of wax with the strange odor of moths. An arresting style with macabre, hypnotic accents.

The Necrophiliac book. Not to mention the excellent translation skills of Don Bapst. Gabrielle Wittkop introduces her character, seduces the reader, subjects them to a flurry of wild, new (I would hope) experiences. It must have been an arduous process to hit just the right note so that the whole sick train doesn't derail. and she does it all with extreme brevity (the book is under 100 pages.

?For more than three decades, Lucien one of the most notorious characters in the history of the novel has haunted the imaginations of readers around the world. Remarkably, the astounding protagonist of Gabrielle Wittkop’s lyrical 1972 novella, The Necrophiliac, has never appeared in English until now. This new translation introduces readers to a masterpiece of French literature, striking not only for its astonishing subject matter but for the poetic beauty of the late author’s subtle, intricate writing. Like the best writings of Edgar Allan Poe or Baudelaire, Wittkop’s prose goes far beyond mere gothic horror to explore the melancholy in the loneliest depths of the human condition, forcing readers to confront their own mortality with an unprecedented intimacy.
