Author(s): Jorge Semprun
Jorge Semprun, one of Europe's most eminent voices, was twenty years old when arrested for activities in the French Resistance. He was sent to Buchenwald concentration camp. Literature or Life is a deeply personal account not only of Jorge Semprun's time at Buchenwald, but also of the years before and after, of his painful attempts to write this book...created out of obsessions that returned to him again and again like themes in a nightmarish rhapsody.
Jorge Semprun, novelist and playwright, was Spain's Minister of Culture from 1988?1991. He lives in Paris.
