Narrative is replaced by a perverted resemblance as dogs become words, genitals stand in for the bodies from which they hang, and the differences between orifices of the body are negated. In this world of dominance and submission, power is unable to gain stability as regimes rise and fall in terrifyingly short pulses. Understandably, this is not a book that will tell you what you already know. As Amandine André writes in her preface, the book depicts a hermetic world, an isolated logic and isolated rhythm, a domination. Andrés writing is as circuitous as it is rhythmic, and her thought as impenetrable as it is crystal clear. This translation by Kit Schluter and Jocelyn Spaar, with an afterword by the former and original illustrations by the latter, introduces the work of this important Marseille poet into English for the first time.
