Format: Paperback
Shoot the modernist! The trouble with Gabriel Josipovici's Creative Oeuvre is that there's just so much of it. 'Critical mass', Fludernik calls it! Seriously, I seriously intend to seriously tackle it one of these days, starting with the aptly named Infinity*. Meanwhile, Fludernik's English is endearingly ropey. Early Josipovici is pure Pinter-and-water (and Pinter, heaven knows, was sub-Beckett; what is it with us Brits?). Where have any of his plays actually been performed? Thoughout Britain, says Wikipedia grandly. Mainly Brighton Actors' Workshop, says Fludernik. I'm all for an avant garde - bring it on! - but anyone looking back to Duchamp is about 100 years out of date, if you take Duchamp as le dernier des Dadaistes, as I do (doesn't everyone?). Read the still nobly unNobeled Appelfeld instead. He had no need of 'influences'

* Or perhaps not. 'Classical Athens was a disaster for the west..' 'Few artists know what it means to be an artist.' Hear the irony? Me neither
