      ‭‭‎Mort a Credit = Death on Credit = Death on the Installment Plan, Louis-Ferdinand Céline (1894 - 1961)Death on Credit (French: Mort à crédit), US translation: Death on the Installment Plan, is a novel by author Louis-Ferdinand Céline, published in 1936. In Death on Credit, Ferdinand, Céline's alter ego, is a doctor in Paris, treating the poor who seldom pay him but take every advantage of his availability. The action is not continuous but goes back in time to earlier memories and of [...]

    4. Tara on said:

      In Céline’s Death on the Installment Plan, scornful young Ferdinand unenthusiastically lugs readers along on the series of farcical (mis)adventures also known as his childhood. We encounter monstrously preposterous characters and stories with varying dimensions of outlandish implausibility. And through it all, we end up sympathizing completely with his disgust, contempt, frustration, and underlying disappointment. For although Ferdinand is emphatically vitriolic, bitter, pessimistic and snide [...]

      Relentless, unforgiving, morbid, histrionic, hilarious, insufferable, in permanent fear of a full clause, miserable, depressing, sick-minded . . . this pell-mell assault on taste and the universe pirouettes along its two billion ellipses and nine zillion exclamation points into a world of squalor and shit and the doldrums of being a French peasant at the dawn of modernism. Céline takes the kitchen-sink horror of Zola and reinstates the swear words Zola’s late-Victorian censors forbade him, ad [...]

      «زندگی ما گذراست، حقیقتی‌ست، اما تا همین جایش هم زیادی گذشته.»این اولین جمله ای بود که در کتاب مرگ قسطی توجهم را جلب کرد. کتابی تلخ و تاریک که از زبان یک پزشک نقل می شود. و در طول داستان می فهمی که چرا «تا همین جاش هم زیادی گذشته» و چه طور می شود که قسطی مرد. کتابی که نشانت می دهد د [...]

That's the hatred that kills you.

      Pure unadulterated brilliance. Celine is one of those few authors one comes across whose genius makes one appreciate life, art, and the great fortune one has to be able to experience it. Celine's writings are like a dark gem shining blackly in a sea of mediocre banality. Celine manages to mix severe misanthropy, pessimism, violent disgust with life and humanity with hilarity. Easily one of the best books I've ever read as well as one of the most humorous. This isn't happy humor though. It is dar [...]

    14. Hadrian on said:

      Simultaneously one of the most depressing and hilarious novels I've read. The author has creative sex metaphors that would make fan-fiction authors weep.The style has changed considerably since "Journey to the End of the Night". There is still the same nihilistic mocking tone, the paranoia, the distrust of everything. But instead of tense packed essays, this novel is studded with ellipses like bullet holes. See Celine taking out a Chicago typewriter and blasting down the ennui of interwar bourge [...]

      کتاب خیلی عجیبی بود نمیدونم که چه چیزی باید بگم دقیقاً، اما، یکی از چیزهایی که به ذهنم میرسه الان اینه که تصویرسازی خیلی خیلی قوی ای داره. آدم همه چیز رو میتونه تصور کنه و بیاره جلوی چشمش بدبختی رو با تک تک سلول هاش حس کنه، حالت تهوع بگیره، یا احساس عجز کنه و بیخیال شه کاملاً سر [...]

      “As soon as things begin to look up a little, all people can think of is piggishness…”Louis-Ferdinand Céline is a virtuoso of explicit narration, a prodigy of grotesque and a czar of cynicism…“‘You’re working too hard! You’re a sap! You think they appreciate it? If you knock yourself out, who’s going to take care of you? Not your boss, I bet! Buy me a menthe, kid!

      The master of the ellipse, Celine recounts his tragi-comic career as a youth and doctor in the Paris suburb of Montemartre. If you know Celine, this is his darkest but, in my opinion , most beautifully and vividly written novel. He spins and sputters off into an inner world that has great clarity concerning the surrounding outer world, without any great ability to relate properly to it.I just found myself relating to like my own. If you are new to Celine, think of it as Bukowski meets Moulin Rou [...]

      Wherever I go lately in literature, it seems the French have been there first. Today's episode of this might be called, "How the French saved Modernism from itself." Or at least, how Céline did. This companion to Journey to the End of the Night can be read equally well by itself. In it, a boy – why Ferdinand, it just so happens is his name – grows up at the turn of the century in middle-class Paris. This story looks closely at that boy and that environment, and adds a creative twist to the [...]
