Novels in Three Lines (New York Review Books Classics)


A long island overview BOOKS ORIGINAL

Novels in 3 Lines collects greater than 1000 goods that seemed anonymously within the French newspaper Le Matin in 1906—true tales of homicide, mayhem, and daily life provided with a ruthless economic system that provokes laughter at the same time it shocks. This remarkable trove, undiscovered till the Nineteen Forties and the following translated for the 1st time into English, is the paintings of the mysterious Félix Fénéon. Dandy, anarchist, and critic of genius, the discoverer of Georges Seurat and the 1st French writer of James Joyce, Fénéon conscientiously maintained his personal anonymity, toiling for years as an imprecise clerk within the French warfare division. Novels in 3 Lines is his mystery chef-d’oeuvre, a piece of wierd and singular paintings that brings again the long-ago yr of 1906 with the haunting immediacy of a photo whereas waiting for such disparate works as Walter Benjamin’s Arcades venture and the dying and catastrophe sequence of Andy Warhol.
