Raymond Queneau


Out of print.

Translated by H.J. Kaplan in collaboration with the author.

In this translation of Queneau novel Loin de Reuil, its hereo, Jacques l’Aumone, encounters the horrors of existential ontalgia, the delights of lice-breeding, low life and states of grace on the outskirts of Paris,  pugilism in South American ports. A sequence of seemingly chance events causes him to later incarnate the illusions of his former compatriots in this occupation upon the “silver screen”: the skin of dreams. A novel of comic illusions, and being Queneau, with mathematical and philosophical underpinnings.
