No one's reviewed this? 6 Oct. 2005
By D. B. Visel - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Just a quick note to say that this is a lovely & well written biography of Raymond Roussel in English which neatly complements the one by François Caradec, which is also well worth getting. Ford's includes information on texts discovered since Caradec's biography was written; it's slightly more text-based than Roussel's more biographical study. But anything on Roussel in English makes me deliriously happy . . .

A fascinating and informative biography. A good starting point if you are venturing into the world of Roussel. Makes one want to read all of his works.

A brilliant bio of a mysterious and tantalizing figure in French literature.
