Product description

Review

'Roussel generated the extraordinary inventions of such unclassifiable
fictions as "Impressions of Africa" and "Locus Solus". This procédé, of
which even his greatest champions, most vocally the surrealists, were
unaware during his lifetime.'
-- Gilbert Adair, The Evening Standard --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Raymond Roussel (Paris, January 20, 1877 - Palermo, July 14, 1933) was a French poet, novelist, playwright, musician, chess enthusiast, neurasthenic, and drug addict. Through his novels, poems, and plays he exerted a profound influence on certain groups within 20th century French literature, including the Surrealists, Oulipo, and the authors of the nouveau roman.
