“The hooting of the owl with its tender wing is more familiar to me than the crowing of the cock. I prefer the strings to the woodwinds. Intermission: that is the darkness. The light feels like a vague scratching; it is malaise rather than pain. I am glad to sink back into darkness.”
—Ernst Jünger, Eumeswil

“Set in a post-apocalyptic future, Eumeswil is a brilliant novel of ideas that explores the corruption of power and conformism, even as the anarchic hero charts a course into an unknown freedom. This is a gripping intellectual adventure that merges the tradition of dystopic fiction with philosophical lucidity and a rare aesthetic sensibility.”
—Adam Johnson, author of The Orphan Master’s Son and 2013 Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction
