Product Details


“[Hostovsky] explores madness, heroism, and salvation in this intense, dreamlike novella. . . This captivating novella dramatizes one man’s existential conflict within the larger, worldwide conflagration.” — Publishers Weekly

“A dark firecracker of a book…tantalisingly knitting together the philosophical novel, the existential thriller, the spy romance and the noir war story…a real find.” — Bookanista

“Whether charting transient freedom in Paris, “city of light rustlings, of sweetly secret speech, of blue grayness”, or chronicling inner turmoil, this overlooked classic is both beautiful and intense.” — Glasgow Herald

“A superb writer.” – Milan Kundera

The Hideout‘ is important as an encouraging example of a new spiritual trend in European literature.” Free World

“A remarkable novel… As absorbing reading it matches any popular novel, yet it does so without the customary devices.”The New Masses

“Hostovsky delights in discoveries of the depths and oddities, the strange courses and subtle transformations of human souls… A forceful language rich in images adds to the pleasure of reading.” Saturday Review
