The Other Book: Bewilderments of Fiction - Stages (Hardback)Jordan Stump (author)
- We can order this
Each form of Le chiendent both is and is not what we mean when we say "Le chiendent," yet the friction between their ways of being and that of "the book itself" proves unexpectedly productive, raising troublesome questions about the nature of textuality, reading, language, and knowledge. It also positions us to assess several answers proposed in response to such questions and to wonder about their usefulness. And as we consider those questions, we will have Queneau's novel beside us, further confounding our attempts to answer-for our inability to answer those questions is precisely the point of The Other Book, as it is of Le chiendent.
