Description
Information
A young officer is dispatched to a remote mountain garrison. Although he soon realizes he is never going to find fulfilment or even military glory there, he cannot tear himself away, overawed and reduced to total passivity by the dark gorges, dazzling ice-fields and dizzying gulfs all around. It is only the possible approach of an enemy army that can finally break through his inertia...Written in 1938, The Tartar Steppe was ostensibly inspired by Buzzati's experience of working endless nightshifts on a newspaper. Yet there are few novels in any language which capture so vividly the emotional emptiness - and the desperate desire to fill it - behind the terrible slide towards war.
