A Turn of the Wheel – Rare Book For Sale
Maltese Fiction by Oliver Friggieri
A Turn of the Wheel tells the story of a young university student who becomes obsessed with a philosophy professor; his subsequent affair with a young seminarian repeats this idealised pursuit of the image of his desire, and a frustrating liaison with a prostitute eventually leads him to attempt suicide. His attempt fails, and he grows to realise that even this act of desperation was just another bitterly ironic turn of the wheel of his fate.
This intense and psychologically acute novel helped to establish Oliver Friggieri as one of contemporary Malta’s most distinguished writers of fiction.
Translated from the Maltese by Grazio Falzon. Paperback, pp77, with an introduction by the book’s translator Grazio Falzon and Konrad Hopkins.
