Reviews: Merle, Robert

“Death is no friend to man, not ever.”

Malevil — Robert Merle

Today’s translated work is Robert Merle’s Malevil, first published in French in 1972 and translated  into English by Derek Coltman in 1973. I remember it being pretty popular in the 1970s, enough that it got a movie adaptation in 1981, but as far as I can tell it has almost entirely fallen into obscurity1 and out of print. That’s a pity, because Merle has some interesting angles on well-tested tropes.
