Praise

“[Pajak] meditates on the need to remember the past in order to understand the present…A complex portrait of the nature and power of narrative.” —Kirkus Reviews

“The pieces are quite compelling, succinct and often just slightly off-beat (or off the beaten track, as is the case both with Pajak’s personal experiences and, for examples, most of the parts of Benjamin’s life he writes about), a neat mix of information and relfection. . . The writing is very good, even as the pieces can feel both stark and abrupt; still, a short chronicle such as ‘Two Fascists’ certainly makes for a very powerful read. . . Certainly of interst, and certainly engaging– and leaves one curious about the volumes that follow, and the project as a whole.” —M.A. Orthofer, The Complete Review

“Could Pajak be called an inventor [of the illustrated book]? It remains the case that Frédéric Pajak has brought it to a new perfection.” —Le Nouvel Observateur


Uncertain Manifesto is amazing, funny, touching. You have the sense that for Pajak making books is a question of life or death.” —France Inter


“What’s so moving is the combination of thoughtfulness and dreaminess, thoughtfulness about himself and about the world at large, and then there’s the mix of drawing and quotation, of dry humor and modesty. What Frédéric Pajak gives us is a landscape in which thought moves.” —Le Temps
