The riddle of the spinx
|Format:||Print Book |
|Availability:||On Order 7 copies|
From a daring escape over revolutionary Iran's Zagros Mountains, to the glittering night clubs of Paris; from the Caspian Sea to Wimbledon, from the halls of Princeton University to an exiled princess's palatial New York apartment, The Riddle of the Sphinx takes us on a dramatic journey in an epic and psychological novel of self-discovery, sexual obsession, exile and destiny.
Like Proustian characters trapped in a mental hologram, the novel explores the workings of the human mind and tackles the question of identity, false selves and the transcendental and existential reality hidden behind the delusions that are a hallmark of the human condition.
Author Alexandre Montagu delves into myth, philosophy and the quest for enlightenment using lyrical prose that unfolds to reveal life's eternal truths in a dazzling tableau.
