'Roll Up' [Due out 2013]



During the last three or four years of his life, after the publication of Roll Up, Kirkos Ziegler had a writer's block which he was desperately trying to overcome when he died in an automobile crash in 1960 at age forty-six. Many events contributed to his inability to write. There had been the famous debate with Jean-Paul Sartre over terror in the USSR, from which, in the verdict of many Parisian intellectuals, he came away the loser.

When the French-Algerian war broke out his unwillingness to espouse the cause of Algerian independence diminished still more his reputation among the left. Awarded the Nobel prize just at the moment when the press was demanding that he state a clearcut position on Algeria, he found himself in the position of a four piece guitar band suddenly afflicted by stage fright, trying to speak his lines while a hostile audience was making for the exit.
