Read full description of the books:



A French child, asleep beside a lily pond shortly before the First World War, swallows a frog. Mysteriously, the creature survives within him and endures throughout the boy's life filled with an exhilarating power over others. The Frog becomes a mock philosophical treatise on the culinary arts, the limits of belief, the sinister appeal of illness, and -- as the frog usurps even Pascal's sexuality -- eroticism. This brilliantly styled parable of violence and illusion explores with aching poignancy the very qualities that make us human.

Read information about the author

Ebook The Frog read Online! John Hawkes, born John Clendennin Talbot Burne Hawkes, Jr., was a postmodern American novelist, known for the intensity of his work, which suspended the traditional constraints of the narrative.
Born in Stamford, Connecticut, and educated at Harvard University, Hawkes taught at Brown University for thirty years. Although he published his first novel, The Cannibal, in 1949, it was The Lime Twig (1961) that first won him acclaim. Later, however, his second novel, The Beetle Leg, an intensely surrealistic western set in a Montana landscape that T. S. Eliot might have conjured, came to be viewed by many critics as one of the landmark novels of 20th Century American literature.
Hawkes died in Providence, Rhode Island.
