  • "Originally written in 1950, then revised and first published in 1992, "The Dwarfs" is Harold Pinter's only novel. Set in postwar Britain, "The Dwarfs" describes the intertwined lives and concerns of four young Londoners: Len, working at the Euston train station but fascinated by abstract mathematics; Mark, a sometime actor; and Virginia and Pete, a young couple trying to define their relationship amid the powerful, sometimes destructive forces at work among the four. In the evolution of this quadrilateral friendship and the strains it creates, Harold Pinter explores how ordinary lives are molded by the limitations and boundaries of sexuality, intimacy, and mortality. It is a world populated by dwarfs -- young people who have departed, only to leave emptiness. Funny, vivid, and haunting, "The Dwarfs" is a brilliantly intriguing and chillingly perceptive novel by a writer whose imagination has shaped our lives."@en
  • "Ce roman, écrit au début des années cinquante, raconte une sorte d'errance à travers le Londres des pubs et des jardins publics, des garçonnières et des boîtes de nuit et des rues de banlieue. Là se croisent, se quittent et se retrouvent trois amis, dont les rapports sont assez ambigus, faits de complicité, d'agressivité et de diatribes contre toutes sortes d'ennemis réels ou invisibles."
