Read full description of the books The Bathroom:

First published in France in 1985, The Bathroom was
Jean-Philippe Toussaint's debut novel, and it heralded a new generation
of innovative French literature. In this playful and perplexing book,
we meet a young Parisian researcher who lives inside his bathroom. As
he sits in his tub meditating on existence (and refusing to tell us his
name), the people around him—his girlfriend, Edmondsson, the Polish
painters in his kitchen—each in their own way further enables his
peculiar lifestyle, supporting his eccentric quest for immobility. But
an invitation to the Austrian embassy shakes up his stable world,
prompting him to take a risk and leave his bathroom . . .
