About The Book
One of the last major untranslated works by France’s most controversial author, London Bridge is a riotous novel about the London underworld during World War I. Picking up where Guignol’s Band (1944; English translation 1954) left off, Céline’s autobiographical narrator recounts his disastrous partnership with a mystical Frenchman (intent on financing a trip to Tibet by winning a gas-mask competition); his uneasy relationship with London’s pimps and whores and their common nemesis, Inspector Matthew of Scotland Yard; and, most scandalously, his affair with a baronet’s 14-year-old daughter, an English angel whose descent into vice is suspiciously smooth. He dreams of escaping with her to America to start a new life, but he, his mystical partner, and his under-aged mistress finally awake to reality crossing windswept London Bridge.
Written in his trademark style — a headlong rush of slang, brusque observation, and quirky lyricism, delivered in machine-gun bursts of prose and ellipses — Céline re-creates the darkest days during the Great War with sordid verisimilitude and desperate hilarity, expertly captured in Dominic Di Bernardi’s racy translation.
