I confess I had never heard of Jorge Semprun, a prominent Spanish writer, politician and former government minister, until I picked up The Long Voyage Le grand voyagean autobiographical novel based upon his experiences in the Second World War.

Indeed, the nature of reality, or unreality, plays a major role in the text.
