Product Description


From the perspective of American readers, Jacques Jouet s writing is one of contemporary French literature s best-kept secrets. That s because until very recently none of his books had found their way into English translation and the fault is ours rather than his, because Jouet himself has been producing smart, funny, vibrant, pungent literature in astonishing diversity and abundance for the last quarter century. --Warren Motte, author of Fables of the Novel: French Fiction Since 1990

So wonderful Feb. 5 2012
By E. Silverstone - Published on
Format: Paperback
I very much enjoyed this wonderful short story. Even though Jouet wrote the book with "constraints", both obvious ones and ones unknown (to me), the story's effect (on me) is infinite. Reminds me of the one Queneau book I have read. Reminds me, too, that I should try to read every book published by Dalkey Archive.
