      One of the great works of Twentieth Century Literary Fantasy The Experience of the Night was published in the last year of The Second World War. It became a cult novel amongst the surrealists, gaining an almost mythic status as the masterpiece of the French Kafka. It inhabits a nighttime world where dream and reality are indistinguishable. A novel about vision, dream and reality. Its hero is the human eye and Marcel Adrien. He sees the sign of an ophthalmologist and enters to inquire about having his eyes tested and finds that he is expected. Dr Fohat has files on his future clients and diagnoses myopia and prescribes dark glasses and a treatment of pills to be taken after twelve hours of work on an empty stomach.
