Product Details

Praise

This is an astonishing capture of Crevel’s most memorable text: funny, sad, spilling over, and impossible to put down. —Mary Ann Caws

Without René Crevel we would have lost one of the most beautiful pillars of Surrealism. —André Breton

Crevel was born rebellious the way others are born with blue eyes. —Philippe Soupault

He will be read more and more as the wind carries away the ashes of the ‘great names’ that preceded him. —Ezra Pound

Crevel actually wrote only a single sentence: the long sentence of a feverish monologue from the pen of a Proust who dipped his biscuit laced with LSD into his tea, instead of the unctuous madeleine. —Angelo Rinaldi, L’Express

The works that Crevel left us indicate that he was one of the most original, gifted French novelists of the century. —San Francisco Bay Guardian

Crevel remains one of the most readable Surrealists…His liquid language tumbles along, powered by his strong descriptions, by his love of Freudian wordplay—rarely is a cigar just a cigar. —Publishers Weekly
