Product Description


What could be more serious and important for an artist than the need to destroy his critics? . . . Chevillard has chosen as target for his ire the destructive Jean Napole on De sire Nisard (1806 1888) . . . [and] subverts this obsession into brilliant comedy. Nisard is everywhere . . . We may choose between taking Nisard s side or enlisting to destroy Nisard ourselves.

About the Author

Eric Chevillard was born in 1964 in La Roche-sur-Yon in the west of France. He published his first novel, "Mourir m enrhume" ("Dying Gives Me a Cold"), at the age of twenty-three, and has since gone on to publish more than twenty works of fiction, including "The Crab Nebula, On the Ceiling, Palafox", and "Demolishing Nisard".

Jordan Stump is the noted translator of several modern French novelists, including novel prize winner Claude Simon, for whom his translation of Le Jardin des Plantes won the French American Foundation s Translation Prize.
