    1 thought on “Kzradock the Onion Man and the Spring-Fresh Methuselah”

    1. "What is the truth, and what are the lies in this damned business?" Well, that certainly is the question at the heart of this book, which our narrator tells us is a"dreadful and bloody mystery, one that is still not entirely understood by the author." The word "mystery" here is certainly in line with the back-cover blurb which calls this book "a fevered pulp novel," but really, it is anything but. There are certainly a number of pulp elements found here that make for fun reading; on the other ha [...]

    2. As I have limited knowledge of pulp literature from the early 20th-century, and as the entirety of this knowledge consists of this book and the Fantomas novels, I will use the Fantomas novels to gain an understanding of Kzradock.Like the Fantomas series, Kzradock is pure pulp, conveying the feeling it was written in a single rush of nicotine-fueled inspiration, with the narrative boiled down to its essentials so to provide a head-long reading experience.

    3. Louis Levy's "Kradock the Onion Man" is a fantastic novel.

Our Dr. Renard de Montpensier chronicles the narration, where in essence do we [...]

    4. ‪"Menneskeløget Kzradock, den vårfriske Methusalem" Alene titlen giver jo én lyst til at læse denne fuldstændig gakkede og udflippede, glemte, men nu nyudgivne danske roman fra 1910. Læs hele anmeldelsen her: bognoter/2017/06/29/louis-l‬

    5. Is there no difference? Is reason only disciplined insanity, an insane hallucination that has taken on form, and under whose influence we all live? Is reason a dream created by chance, made useable by necessity?Doubt. Doubt about our surroundings, about our reality, about ourselves. Where doubt should start, and what we would gain from being the detectives of our souls. These are the themes at the core of Kzradock. Themes aside, the novel reads as a remarkably sane surrealist piece, a thriller c [...]
