Product description

Review

Pierre Klossowski was one of the most influential (albeit idiosyncratic) literary figures in France during the postwar years, yet his work remains strangely unknown in the English-speaking world. Such a Deathly Desire was one of the essential books of Klossowski s oeuvre, and it includes seminal articles on Gide, Bataille, and Blanchot, as well as his now-classic essay Nietzsche, Polytheism, and Parody. The appearance of the book in English has long been anticipated, and we owe an immense debt to Russell Ford for providing us with an accessible and accurate translation. Daniel W. Smith, Purdue University"
