In Abysses, the latest addition to the sequence, Quignard brings us but extra of his troubling, questing characters—souls who're desirous about what preceded and conceived them. He writes with a wealthy mixture of anecdote and mirrored image, aphorism and citation, providing enigmatic glimpses of the current, and assured, pointed borrowings from the earlier. but if he raids the murkier corners of the human checklist, he does so no longer as a historian yet as an antiquarian. Quignard is so much drawn to pursuit of these tales that repeat and echo around the seasons of their timelessness.
