Product Details


“Plume is a modern pilgrim, continually on the quest, in a world which resembles ours but also appears to be the set of a nightmare slapstick. And Plume resembles us as much as he resembles K., Jack Wilton, Charlie Brown, Shuman the Human, the Man Without Qualities, and all those seekers who, when they finally get a chance to address the wise one, are rewarded with a resounding slap in the face.” —Luc Sante

“Monsieur Plume, the sardonic, off-beat, off-center reflection of his author, a character equally indebted to Charlie Chaplin and Franz Kafka, is back. Sieburth’s stunning translation gets all the subtle humor, all the wacky absurdity, and all the tragicomic pathos of Michaux’s original. An essential moment in absurdist aesthetics and a sheer delight to read.” —Cole Swensen
