What a magnificent book. Definitely one of the most astonishing accomplishments in literature I have ever seen. This could be the one book I would take for a desert island, and it will be with us for centuries, just like Homer's Odyssey or Dante's Divine Comedy. It's not the result of chance that this book was considered by Duchamp, Dali and others a masterpiece of modern literature.
This edition is beautifully accomplished, according to the first edition. Atlas Press is known for the care they devote to their books, and this one is a good example of that.
Undoubtedly money well spent.

This is an unique and brilliant book. It isn't for everyone, and that's the frustrating part. Writing built from the 'sound' of words and phrases up, isn't of interest to everyone; but if they read these books without knowing about 'how' he wrote them (his procedure/process), they would still enchant - though in a very bizarre way...

But i ask the question of Amazon: why is this cover image showing Ian Monk as translator? When you click on the image you get the 'real' book, trans. by Mark Ford. Is this some Rousselian subterfuge? Mark Ford was the first to translate, i thought.
