Book Description

July 14 2013 1937027104 978-1937027100
Commentary is a narrative-hovering between the genres of memoir, theory, and fiction-about a female artist whose abandonment by a lover precipitates a refiguration of her ideas on life, love, and art. Sauvageot died, after many stints in sanatoriums, at the age of 34. Commentaire was highly prasied in its time by Paul Claudel, Paul Valéry, André Gide, Charles Du Bos, René Crevel, ou Clara Malraux. This edition is co-translated by Christine Schwartz-Hartley (African Psycho) and Anna Moschovakis (The Jokers, The Possession).

About the Author

Born in 1900, Marcelle Sauvageot was conneted to the Surrealists by friendship, love, and artistic practice, but as is often the case, she has been excluded from the dominant narrative about that movement-until a reissue of her single book, Commentaire (initially retitled Laissez-Moi) was published in Paris in 2002, prompting a revival of interest in her work and inspiring a successful one-woman show. Christine Schwartz Hartley has translated Venus of Khalakanti, by Angele Kingue (forthcoming from Griot Project Book Series/Bucknell University Press); Kate Moss: The Making of An Icon, by Christian Salmon (April 2012); Mamika: My Mighty Little Grandmother, by Sacha Goldberger (April 2012), both from HaperCollins; and African Psycho, by Alain Mabanckou (February 2007), from Soft Skull Press. A former deputy editor of Art + Auction and contributor to The New YorkTimes Book Review, Bookforum, Interior Design, and Elle Decor, she is responsible for the 2010 reissue of Spécialités de la Maison, a compendium of recipes by early 20th-century literary, political, show-business icons, and socialites. French-born, she holds a diploma from the Institut d'Etudes Politiques de Paris, a master's in journalism from New York University and a licence es-lettres (English) from the Universite Paris IV-Sorbonne. A freelance editor and writer based in Brooklyn,
