The Tenant (paperback)

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

The Tenant by Roland Topor chronicles a harrowing, fascinating descent into madness as the pathologically alienated Trelkovsky is subsumed into Simone Choule, an enigmatic suicide whose presence saturates his new apartment. More than a tale of possession, the novel probes disturbing depths of guilt, paranoia, and sexual obsession with an unsparing detachment. The book was also adapted into a cult classic motion picture by Roman Polanski in 1976.
