Nearly There

The Bulatovic has progressed (regressed) from Rome and the Via Serpenti to Switzerland and then across the frontier to France, culminating in an assault on Paris with Antonio meeting Francois Villon whom after a night of serious drinking and commiserating guts the French President underneath a fireworks display, meanwhile Antonio finds his sister, purchases her favors for the evening, consumates the transaction and then pleads, futilely, for her to kill him. The film makers then rescue a rebuffed, but alive, Antonio from hooligans where all three become of a performance art troupe in ascene remniscent of the Tin Drum. Actually, Grass and Bulatovic were good friends. the novel will likely be concluded tonight.
