Berlin

I live in Paris. Yes, cute. Frankly, I was born like this. I often go to Berlin, now I’m in Berlin. If I’m here it’s because I’m doing my job. That involves getting vacuum kissed and screwed at my office (Prenzlauer Berg). I’m also a good hang.

BAREBACK:

2. without your recent hiv test

As you’ve seen. I’m more interested in sex. I do not want to be friends with you, but if you do not want physical contact then face your face and try elsewhere. Since February I can legally watch porn movies, so I am a sex criminal. For this reason, I do not care about mating. I’m not going to do that seriously anymore, because it’s not worth it to me. But a bit about my affiliation. I live near a small hole in Csorna. Places where I can go first: Csorna, Győr, Sopron, Szombathely, Pápa, Veszprém, Komárom and where the buses and trains still stop. So, either you’re straight to a bed or to a soft lawn, we’re gonna fuck hard. I want sex, but without emotion, I do not go for it. So you will not kiss, caress, hug, etc. I’m a pretty thin guy and I’ll pick up the water soon enough, so let’s not say the word. Let’s say the funeral is a pretty scrambled excuse. So far, it seems to me that I’m a fad, which is not true. It just seems like I did not sleep much, which is quite common with me and it’s early in the morning. I know many people on the site and in reality as well. How can I earn?

My favorite tricks are innocent boys in shithole little villages and towns who don’t have the worldliness to judge their value as sex objects like this very pretty thin blond who has everything it would take to be some billionaire’s pampered boy toy if it weren’t for his circumstance. His reactions to my simple, basic passion and hunger for his goods were as wondrous as a kid in an amusement park and that kind of feedback is tremendously satisfying for me.

spyderbite – June 29, 2018
Not complicated: on the hunt for a 18 y/o live in whore.
Everything would be on the table minus women underage and illegal.
If I’ve commented on your profile there was something in your profile that obviously sparked my interest or your body/looks caught my attention and I can vision it around the house looking good.
Be respectful. If not interested simply address the compliment and state the non interest.

HorrorBuff, 18
Dublin

Hi there the name is David (previously hornyboy142 on here). My apologies to anyone that was negotiating with me before. I had posted some pictures with explicit content on here, which I did not know was not allowed for display purposes and as a result my profile got taken down. Again my apologies.

Apologies also for the secrecy regarding my face. Hopefully you understand why I don’t reveal that here. (Ireland’s got a very ‘community culture,’ where someone knows someone who knows someone and so on). But trust me, I am stunningly cute (that’s why everyone in Dublin not only knows me but thinks they’re my future husband).

OKAY WHAT AM I INTO EXACTLY?

Obviously I realise what happens to me is none of my business, but as my name says, I am a boy who loves the extremes of horror. I am (shamefully?) a dump, a bin for use. It is my purpose to be a bin and to be subject to the sicked fantasties. I feel nothing.

I am a young, masculine, intelligent, high class, laser focused, domineering chav lad in a way that is sexual and and not just during sex in life. I don’t like guys who sugar coat sex. I rip your outer shit off you and go straight to where the meat is reddest.

Had him in Myanar a while back. The previous reviewer is unfair about his body which is tender and a little jiggly in places but very regular. Maybe his very cute face deserves better, but taken as an adjunct source to that face, it fulfilled my requirements.

gabrio44 – June 7, 2018
I took him up on his offer when he was passing through Hanoi. Cute face, sexy attitude, but his body’s like a gone-to-seed fifty year old’s. Being naked with him made me feel like a hottie, and I’m not, but that wasn’t what I was looking for.

I always please that person the i love and I don’t recognise myself that I’m getting obsessed that guy i have a huge message for him and i got short feedback like “ah ok” ”k.” He’s pride was so high I can’t reach anymore sometimes i realise to move on bitch you don’t deserve him you will find a better man I always note to myself.

Isn’t right or fucking right to get off that guy his short his 12 years older than me. I believe my message was so enough to felt sorry for me that promises that i say and I don’t follow the deal . I say I swallowed my pride to say I’m sorry and trusting me very quick you know what it’s really hard to pretend that I’m yours i claim that you are my boyfriend and i told you that my friends, sister and my brothers wife I share my story’s to them to eliminate my feeling that j felt during that.

boyisready, 21
New York City

Hey men! Chris here.

I am loving life here in NYC. I travel between the coasts for work somewhat often so I may not be in the city you think when we’re speaking!

I’m new to the site after literally searching for ‘older men attracted to younger man.’ My jaw dropped after a few minutes when I came across this site. Considering that I hate my current job, it couldn’t be more perfect : )

A little bit about me…I’m just now exploring my attraction to men. It’s been there for as long as I can remember, but I’ve still tried to make it work with women. I date here and there, and even had a long-term relationship or two. It. just. hasn’t. worked.

Long story, short…I did some self reflecting and thought about my life. It became quite clear that throughout my life, I had always struck up friendships with older men more easily. Whether it was my high school teachers or my boss at work. Inevitably they would want to have sex, and I wasn’t interested or didn’t know I was, and I thought it was just because we were usually drinking and acting weird at the time. It’s funny that I didn’t realize it at the time, but my not freaking out about those suggestions was my own subtle expression of my homosexuality.

Now, before you get thinking the wrong things, I don’t mean to imply that I’m interested in ‘men’ as plural. Yes, I’m attracted to men but I’m hoping to find multiple version of the one type of man who is attractive to me. And I don’t know how to describe him, and that’s why I’m here. To say yes or no to men and start that journey.

For reasons I won’t get into here, I’m fairly certain of my status as a bottom. So if you’re an older top, take a shot at me and say hello! Always have some money available of course.

Here goes nothing!

We are twins. We are both the same size and we weigh the same amount. We are only differentiated by our hair color.

We are here looking for a threesome. Since we are both very close together, we decided together to look for money together.

Incidentally, you can do more with a body, face or underpants when you see the same face and body twice. But nude our asses and genitals are very slightly differentiated.

Based in Dortmund. So, overnight is the only possibility guys.

I prefer someone who has a well filled in skull rather than have a well filled briefs so thank you but your pictures of dick, no thank you.
Those contacting with a dick photo .. frankly .. is that really what describes you best? That’s the only argument you have? Well, it is belittling! Not to mention it is even more tiring psychologically!
You know you are too old for me, still you send me a dick pic as a greeting. In what way do you think that would change my mind? Idiot!

To change to the classic: I only want to fuck amiably (and I say ONLY amiably) and why not fuck amiably (I mean, again, ONLY amiably)
“Come and drink herbal tea at my apartment”, no thanks 🙂

Let’s avoid a big age difference, it’s embarrassing. 🚫+35 🚫
I want a father not a grandfather.

PS: I can not stand cigarettes!
As well as the “sportswear” look. Seriously, be smart!
“I’m too shy to send a face pic, here, lets swap numbers so I can send you one on whatsapp” or you send me half of your face or your face with a snapchat filter – you know what? Keep your precious face for yourself!

As I grow into my twenties, I realize I’m not getting any younger and now is the time to really let myself loose.

I’ve battled and suppressed my feelings for too long and have come to terms with the fact that yes, I want to experience being objectified. I want to be sexy, walk into a room and have a guy be blown away by my cute face, check out my ass and give me attention for those reasons only. I know I sound spoiled, but I have never experienced what I am talking about and I don’t think there is anything wrong with romanticising what I don’t know.

Insatiable moneylust so that’s the best way to get my attention. Mention money.

And yes my pics are upside down. Idk how to fix it. Seems like an apt metaphor for my life, anyway.

He wanted to be a DJ
He has been a prostitute since age 15

I am a slim male ballet dancer.

5 ft 8, and only weigh 9 stone, which means i am small and slim, and very easily workable, flexible and bendable.

I go to ballet and dance classes.

I always wear the following gear, that being full bodied ballet costume, matching thong back leotards and tights, hot thong dance pants and lovely legwarmers, made of lycra and spandex. I even wear pretty pink pointe shoes, for pointe class.

I love wearing tight ballet gear, even though I am forced to wear this type of gear, when i dance and prance, and fly through the air, in ballet class, and my full bottom leotard slide up my butt, and wedgies me off, nice and deep, up my butt crack, and gets me all hard round the front – even though I am already hard, just by slipping on a sexy lycra and spandex ballet suit. I even leave the leotard wedgied up my butt, for the women in my class to see – yum yum ! If i decide to wear a thongback leotard or thongback dance pants, there is no way I can pull the wedgied thongs, out of my butt, for all to see !

I would very much like to meet up with any paying guys or girls, and have them watch me dance in front of them, and have them leotard grab my butt end and frontal cock side, and hoist me off the ground, wedgie style, like a ballerina, as I pose like a ballerina, while i position my arms in ballerina poses. I would even love to be photographed and filmed, being worked over, in my pink, white, blue and ballerina outfit, and sexy pink pointe shoes.

I would love to be even fisted by any paying guy or girl, while i am in my sexy aerobics ballet suit, so that when i am fisted up in the air, by my butt end, my cock is grabbed and bent and twsited out of shape, and my balls grabbed and crushed, while i posed like a ballerina, in mid air, while being fisted hard and deep !

I would like this done to me, as many times as possible, by as many people as possible. Please call me to arrange to make my ballet dreams come true.

p.s. Hey. ** Steve Erickson, Hi. Back in the day, I gradually lost interest in King Crimson after their second album, and I’ve never been able to find my way back into their stuff in a more than glancing sense or, actually, into much prog or math-rock in general. Not my tree, I guess. I love ABBA, and think they possess genius, and ‘Mamma Mia’s’ surface coopting kind of nauseated me, and I can only imagine the sequel to be more and worse of the same. I do remember that store you mentioned, and I continue to regret that I didn’t force myself to go there when I was in NYC. Nice score. I find CD bootlegs very fondness-inspiring in general for some reason. ** Tosh Berman, Hi, Tosh. So happy to have intrigued you with that book. People often ask me for French publisher recommendations, and I’m strangely not very knowledgeable at all about what French publishers are right or a good fit for certain books, especially with non-fiction as I really don’t know that aspect of publishing here much at all. You could try mine, POL, although they kind of famously rarely publish English language authors, but still, it might be worth a try. Does City Lights have presses here that they deal with? Is there anyone who could facilitate the foreign rights, at least vis-a-vis France, for you? I can ask people I know here who understand the publishers better than I do, and I will. I’m sure there’s some perfect place. Let me pass along your question just in case. Everyone, Here’s Tosh Berman. Can anyone reading this give him some knowledge or advice? Tosh: ‘I’m looking for a French publisher for my memoir “Tosh.” Do you have any recommendations for a French publisher? I do have a translator who is French and is interested in bringing the work to the French language. For those who do not know, my book is a childhood / teenage memoir of being with my family (of course) but in the world of the Beats in Los Angeles/San Francisco and a bit of London in the summer of love, 1967. My dad is Wallace Berman. So, I’m thinking that there may be a French reading audience for my book. Or, then again, maybe it’s all of a fantasy! My book is coming out in the United States/UK this coming January and published by City Lights. Any recommendations, I will take seriously.’ ** David Ehrenstein, Hi. Huh, I don’t know Ollier’s film criticism, and I’m extremely interested to read it if it’s in English. I will do a hunt. Btw, your comment posted. I think you maybe got caught in some strange Bermuda Triangle kind of problem this blog seems to be suffering through where commenters sometimes can’t see that their comment registered. Weirdness. ** Corey Heiferman, Hi. What is ‘NPR TED Thought’? I feel like I should know what that is, but I don’t. ** Dóra Grőber, Hi, Dóra! Well, it could be worse with ARTE so far. They’re not asking us to throw away what we want to do, they’re asking us to try to go our way but also put in a lot of things that will ‘help the viewer’, i.e. a clear, strong ‘journey’ or narrative through-line, more explicit explanations, more clear background info and motivations, keep our main character at the center of everything all the time, etc., and now we have to find out how/if we can meet their needs without dumbing the series down, basically. Zac, Gisele, and I had a big meeting yesterday where we came up with ideas for how to do that, which we now have to propose them in writing and find out if ARTE will accept our idea of how to solve the problems they see in the script without robbing what we want to do. The real problem is that writing the project is turning more and more into a job, and the exciting and fun part is dying out. But being able to do a TV series is still an interesting enough idea that we are soldiering onwards. So far. Otherwise, I’m good. Mostly just trying not to get eaten alive by the TV project, which is not easy. Cool, you saw Iceage! Yeah, I think Elias is easily one of the most compelling, charismatic front persons ever. A show of theirs here in Paris from several years ago, around the time of their second album, is definitely up there amongst my all-time favorite gigs. And you got to meet him! Yes, he’s quite different offstage, right? As I’ve said, I like him as a person a lot. Very smart, complicated, deep, kind. So … very cool! I hope everything else is super awesome for you too! Have an amazing weekend! ** Chris Cochrane, Hey, Them-er. If France wins the WC tomorrow, Paris is going to go completely bonkers. Here’s hoping. Fingers crossed re: ‘Them’s’ bright future. Oh, so sorry, Chris, about the big blow out with Val. Better to get it out and over with than have that rumbling under a superficially okay thing, I guess? I’m sorry. Put it in the work. Or what you can translate of it. Or use it as a helpful but rote launching pad? Or I don’t know. Hugs. ** _Black_Acrylic, Cool. About the book’s easy reach. Oh, yes, the Trump in the UK stuff is completely inescapable barring the exiling of TV and the internet. The Trump addiction plague rampages on. I did read that the Glasgow School of Art wil be rebuilt, and that’s very relieving. ** Caitie, Hi, Caitie! Good to see you! I hope that hectic-ness was of the awesome variety. Can ‘hectic’ be a positive thing? I think so. Gosh, thank you about my name. That’s a nice way to think about it. I generally don’t like the regularity of it, that both words have two syllables and, more so, that the emphasis is on the first syllable in both words. But, okay, I can sort of see a loveliness there now. Thank you. I like Claude. It leaves a mark on the ears. Ha ha, cool, I love the reasons you were named Olivia. I love that your name was conceptualised. I love that it was conceptualised as a duality. Your mom sounds cool. It’s true, I’m kind of a generally excited person, it’s weird, but I’m glad. Your #5 is a tricky one to answer. Mm, in my dream of this blog, the posts would be the generative, central force of the comments for that day. Obviously, I put a lot of thought and effort into them, and I obviously don’t want them to be just ‘entrance’ signs hanging over the commenting link and the p.s. I call it ‘p.s.’ for a reason, right? At the same time, the posts are often hefty, and I don’t expect people to feel they have to engage with them deeply or thoroughly on a daily basis because that’s asking a lot. So it’s a mixed thing. Does it disappoint me when commenters don’t acknowledge the post? Sure, a little, but I’m very used to that, and it only really bothers me when commenters habitually ignore the posts, which doesn’t happen very often. It does bother me when it’s a guest-post and commenters ignore it because someone went out of their way to make a post hoping people will respond to it, and, in those cases, I think it’s rude and a bit thoughtless for commenters not to at least give some sign in their comments that they noticed and somehow appreciated the post. Ultimately, I’m interested to see what happens. I’m interested to find out what each post generates, whatever the reaction is, and when, for instance, a post is largely ignored or brushed off, or, on the other hand, particularly responded to, I’m interested to think about that means about the post and about the blog form in general. So I guess in a way it all interests me, and my interest is sometimes on the excited and curious end of the scale and sometimes on the confused or disappointed end. All of which must be not such a surprise, I guess. Pretty normal reaction for me to have, I would guess? Thank you a lot for asking. What’s going on with you at the moment? Anything making you especially want and/or satiating your wanting? ** Bill, Hi. Yeah, I’m with you. Zorn/Laswell: I feel like I can illustrate what that was without even knowing, but I bet I can’t, which is interesting. I’ll stream some of The Brankas in a minute. What an album title! I’m curious. Thanks, buddy. Enjoy what I hope will constitute something of a weekend off from all possible suckage. ** Right. Did you already guess you would get escorts today? Well, you do get them, don’t you? It’s that time of the month. Seek your imagination’s fortune therein if you like. See you on Monday.

Spotlight on … Claude Ollier The Mise-en-Scène (1958)

 

It is not impossible to imagine … a novel whose fiction would be exciting enough so that the reader intensely felt the desire to know its last word which precisely, at the last minute, would be denied to him, the text pointing to itself and towards a rereading. The book would be thus, a second time, given to the reader who could then while rereading it, discover everything in it which in his first mad fever he had been unable to find. — Benoit Peeters

The photo is still famous. Signed Mario Dondero, it shows the writers of the Nouveau Roman, taken in 1959 on rue Bernard Palissy, before the offices of Editions de Minuit. Claude Ollier, who died Saturday, October 18, 2014 at the age of 91, was the last survivor of the team of eight authors immortalized that day — the movement itself is now left entirely in the hands of its two surviving proponents, Michel Butor and Jean Ricardou.

However Ollier’s unclassifiable work, having been nourished by an exploration of many different genres, must not be reduced or completely assimilated to this literary trend.

A year before the famous photograph was taken, in 1958, Claude Ollier had published his first novel, Mise-en-Scene. It was immediately awarded the Prix Médicis, which had just been created: the story of a French engineer sent to France for the care of the construction of a road in the Moroccan Atlas, who discovers the mysterious disappearance of several of his predecessors.

The context was inspired by Ollier’s stay in Morocco, in 1950, as an official of the administration Sharifian in the High Atlas and in Casablanca, where he kept a diary and began to write short stories, and where his dream vocation as a writer was affirmed.

Born in Paris in 1922, the writer Claude Ollier had studied at the Lycee Carnot prewar, and he received a philosophy degree in Montlucon in 1940. Then followed law studies and a management position at the École des Hautes Études Commerciales.

Sent to Germany by the STO in 1943, he fled before being taken hostage near Lake Constance and shipped in Swabia. After the war, he worked in insurance, then as official. After 1958, he finally left public service to devote himself to writing.

Ollier’s second book, Le Maintien de l’ordre, was rejected by publisher Jérôme Lindon in 1960 and was published a year later by Gallimard. In 1963, he published Été indien, with Minuit. He then wrote radio plays, and the respected novel cycle of Jeu d’enfant, whose four books were published from 1972 to 1975. In 1967, he published with Gallimard L’Échec de Nolan et Navettes, and Mon Double in 1979-81, inspired by a trip to Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia in 1977.

Car trips were a central part and major inspiration of Ollier’s life and work: United States, Germany, Quebec, and Marrakech in the 1960s and 1970s; Europe and Morocco still in the 1980s; Australia and New Zealand in 1990; and finally Jordan. Also beginning in the late 1960s, Ollier for a short time worked as an actor in films, most famously in Robert Bresson’s masterwork Un Femme Douce (1969).

In December 1997 he was elected into Écrivains à Paris, and a symposium in honor of his work, which at that point numbered nearly fifty books, was held in Paris. He subsequently launched into writing the novel cycle “quatre récits de couleur mythologique”, which was published by Editions POL between the years 2000 and 2007. A tireless traveler, Claude Ollier lived in Provence and Marrakech before settling in Maule in the Yvelines, where he lived until his death. In 2013, he published his last book book, Cinq contes fantastiques (POL), which was nicely subtitled: “Choses vues de ma fenêtre au deuxième étage de la maison.” –– Sabine Audrerie

Interview
from The Review of Contemporary Fiction

 

Cecile Lindsay: I have always been struck by the absence of the Second World War and the Algerian War in your fictions.

Claude Ollier: If we exempt the fleeting and marginal “return” to European soil in L’Echec de Nolan, as phantomlike, muffled, nocturnal, and haunted by bad memories and nightmares, then all the other books are situated outside of Europe and far from Europe, farther and farther. On the one hand, it became almost impossible to “think” lucidly about what had been that sort of self-destruction of Europe between 1930 and 1945; on the other hand, it is clear that what is important in the evolution of the world since then is no longer taking place there. The obstinate and persevering hero of Le Jeu d’enfant senses and knows it from the beginning; it is the terrible knowledge acquired in adolescence, an admitted, outmoded fact of which he will never speak; the Second World War destroyed all he had been taught, humanism included, along with his whole inherited childhood universe. He is trying bravely, ingenuously perhaps, to take everything back to zero, in the beginning of La Mise en scene just as the book’s author tries, by a sort of narrative tabula rasa, to take back to square one all the elements of narration: observation of a country, a civilization, a foreign language, an unknown story. And all the primordial questions are asked there in a single movement: what is seeing, hearing, interpreting, exploring, reflecting, remembering, dreaming, writing, speaking? His instruction begins again, his life is reeducated elsewhere, on an “exotic” soil, extra-muros, far from the ruins of his childhood and his native land, far from the other side of the walls of a Europe whose Second World War culminated in a sort of cultural suicide. This war was for him the equivalent of that inaugural catastrophe that the hero of so many science fiction tales has trouble remembering or measuring but that conditions the entirety of his new universe. For him, it is as though this catastrophe “upstream” could not be recounted. And he tries anew to see, to tell, to write, having come into contact with foreign languages unknown to him—languages which, by their difference from his own, will allow him to look upon his mother tongue differently and to use it anew.

CL: A strong current in American literary criticism and critical theory of recent years has been a call for a more “political” approach to both writing literature and writing about literature. Experimental fiction has often been critiqued for what is seen as its “hyperformalism.” Were this charge to be made about your writing, how would you respond?

CO: I would answer that this accusation, which is superficial and banal, rests upon a regrettable lack of reflection on the question of language and of its relation to the body; upon the question of form and of the evolution of forms; and, more generally, upon any question that is epistemological, philosophical, or aesthetic in nature. Or I would answer, more simply, that those who make this charge have probably not read the books of which they claim to speak. For to use the term experimental is to misconstrue completely the very nature and practice of the act of writing such as they are manifested in books like mine. My work has absolutely nothing to do with “experimentation.” In the exact, scientific sense of the term, experimentation consists of isolating certain elements and conducting upon them duly controlled experiments, systematic manipulations, skillful alterations. I have nothing against this kind of work, and some of its results can be interesting and instructive. But my kind of intervention in respect to language and narrative forms has nothing to do with that. You could even say that it is the opposite: indeed, genuine experimentation necessarily tries as much as possible to eliminate chance, while my whole practice consists in provoking, in narrative invention, the greatest possible degree of chance, soliciting at every moment the irruption of elements which are more or less diffuse, forgotten, or firmly buried within the unconscious. I can only write, can only feel the pleasure of writing, if I reconnect with past emotions. I have an absolute need in the beginning for a precise setting, a setting in which I have lived; I need it so that the sensations, perceptions, and emotions can flow. Even on an “imaginary” planet, my writing can function only if it is plugged into memories, dreams, and intuitions. The phantasmic scenes of Epsilon and Enigma are closely derived from lived scenes from the recent or distant past. This is what I call the anchorage of a fiction. Everything in my texts arrives there by way of this anchorage in a place, by way of the paths, the journeys, the adventures, the dramas linked to this place. This is the source of the elan which allows for the development of a story: this story is launched on emotional traces, that is, on the reviviscence of the body’s displacements in a space known and forgotten, and on linkings of synesthetic, kinesthetic sensations whose recall and inscription in adequate terms regroup all the other sensations—visual, auditory, tactile. And for me the auditory sensations are much more important than the visual ones; the sounds connected with a place evoke that place for me, years later, much better than images: the tape recording is by far superior to photography. The tracing of lines is linked up to this play of recall and resurgences; the words, sentences, paragraphs, and blanks between lines must be fused by the permanence of this elan.

Each day, I start out on an impulse of this sort, which may only last a few minutes or can sometimes stretch out into several hours, but when I no longer feel its action within me, I know there is no point in insisting because there is no longer any vital necessity to continue, and it is only for that that I write. This necessity must be inscribed in each word, between the words, palpably. Only then can the reader feel an emotion of the same nature and force. If a sentence fails to transmit the emotion, it’s no good, it must be rejected or transformed. This work of palpable re-creation thus takes place through work upon forms: of vocabulary, of syntax, of typical and coded narrative formulas. This implies a putting into form of assonances, of relations of sonority, of rhythms, of silences, of the tempo intended for each piece. Here it is principally a question of music, a music of the text which is composed a bit like a musical score; I listen to it, I play it to myself, play it again, modify it, listen again, until the “musical phrase” is perfect, untouchable. If this work upon forms is called “hyperformalism,” then Bach, Schubert, Cervantes, Debussy, Rabelais, Flaubert, Bartok, Henry James, Proust and many others are remarkable hyperformalists.

It could be added that the necessity of an evolution of forms is inscribed within the exhaustion resulting from the prolonged use of these forms. By dint of being endlessly repeated, such forms become cliches, forms emptied of emotion. It is in order to reactivate emotive reactions (which form the basis of all the others— argumentative, critical, ethical) and to produce new ones that writers, musicians, and painters periodically “disconnect” from an ambient academicism diffused and lauded by the media, and compose works which appear to be completely apart, completely marginal and unassimilable. But these works create, there, a new poetics, and I would willingly speak of poetics in relation to my books, which are not novels. Finally, this necessity of disconnection and upheaval always rejoins at a certain point a sort of irrepressible curiosity, submitted to a mysterious logic of plastic transformations, and linked to meaning, to the relation of the body to meaning and form. All this, which should be developed point by point, clearly has nothing to do with the activity of some experimental laboratory.

CL: What are the “politics of fiction” in France in recent years? Why do we see a resurgence of more conventional novelistic forms and a rejection, from some quarters, of experimentation in fiction?

CO: I’m not sure I understand what you mean by “politics of fiction.” Who enunciates, advocates, or applies this “politics”? What I know of are fashions, which are launched or sustained by the modem media and which are in a state of constant disjunction in respect to stages of creation such as they are lived by writers. By disjunction I mean a delay. I think that there was a remarkable series of narrative innovations in France after the end of the Second World War. One can study this series historically and formally, analyzing its currents, works, filiations, and influences. One can also, if one has the taste for it, study its echo (if there is one) in the media of the same period. One will note that the delay in providing information, to say nothing of analysis and criticism, is between two and ten years. And the principal objective of the accumulated power of the media is, today, to blur and confuse the paths, to tend to efface them, retaining only one slim trace for show, while awaiting the next show. This volatilization of reality takes place on a large scale and is motivated by the quest for quick sales and high ratings. All of this could give the impression of a “resurgence” of the traditional novel. But it has no more “resurged” now than it had foundered in the era of the New Novel, from 1955 to 1960. It has been in good health for the last forty years, and that’s perfectly normal. Every era is marked by a very major conservative current and a very minor innovative current. What characterizes a given era is the particular difference, the singular gap that it reveals between these two currents. The gap can be rather minimal in certain eras and considerable in others. It has tended to grow, in my opinion, over the last half-century, to a great extent because of the Second World War, all of whose consequences in the cultural domain have not yet been weighed by most of our contemporaries. And also because of the fact that in all the compartments of social life, evolution since the beginning of the century has been extremely sudden and rapid and unexpected, surprising everyone, creating in every domain—technological, military, political, ethical- enormous simultaneous upheavals which could not have been avoided, abated, attenuated. One submitted to them and continues to submit to their full force; one is obliged to adapt, and one adapts badly. So our Western society today strives to preserve intact the cultural sector and, above all, that of the narrative: it is absolutely imperative that this vital activity—the auto narrativity of a society, the “representation,” if you will, or the “recitation” of this society to itself—remain sheltered from this wave of questioning. And this sector can be stabilized; mastery over it can be maintained (it may well be the only one today). All that need be done is to uniformly marginalize any innovation, especially threatening manifestations of rupture. Thus it can be confirmed, curiously, in this fin de siecle, that any social change is finally admitted quite soon, even if it constitutes a break with secular customs, except in the narrative domain. Everything else can “blow”—the atom, the family, ideology—but literary genres must hold! Thus the novelistic still shines today as the enduring quietude of consciences, the glowing repose of the citizen who is buffeted on all other sides and who is frightened. The major media, plus computerization, in the service of generalized literary academicism: this is the burlesque cultural project in which we have been engaged for quite a while. This will function for a certain time. For a long time perhaps, longer than we think. And then, one fine day, the gap will resurface, in broad daylight, in all its violence.

CL: At the end of your essay “French Version,” you signal the need for a new reading, a different way of approaching the kind of texts you and others have written. Can you elaborate further on what specific directions or forms this new reading might take? How could this new kind of reading translate into literary criticism? How does this proposed accent on “le biographique,” on the person of the writer, differ from standard biographical criticism?

CO: When I suggested “new gestures of reading, ones which are attentive to metamorphoses,” at the end of “French Version,” I meant something like this: to place oneself in the movement of the text, that is, in its creative movement, in the same path that the text’s inventor was in the process of opening up, of clearing away, of exploring when he chose his words, cadences, punctuation marks, silences. In other words, to listen to the music of the text attentively enough to perceive its assonances, its resonances, its close or distant rhymes, its allusions, and at the same time the tensions, the differences between the passages that came easily (one can sense it) and those where the phrase nearly broke or hesitated or went off in an unexpected direction (one can sense this, too, in any finished text). Or again: to “get inside the skin” of the author, to adopt his apprehensions, successes, pleasures, doubts. This is the only way to feel the words vibrate fully and to deliver them of all their meaning—their manifest meaning as well as their hidden, yet perceptible meaning. This is not a new attitude, you will say, and that’s true: it holds for any truly organized text. I therefore linked “gestures of reading” to “metamorphoses.” And there I wanted to make reference to two contemporary events of extreme importance: the insistence of psychoanalysis on the play of the signifier, on the one hand, and on the other, the breakdown of European cultural ethnocentrism. There is no time to develop these two points in detail here. I will simply say that all my books, on the whole, call for an opening onto the Other, and this Other is as much the unconscious, the “double,” as it is the Other repressed by European writing for centuries—the Islamic civilization, for example. My books in which this aspect is most manifest are Marrakch Medine and Mon Double a Malacca, both subsequent to Le Jeu d’enfant. But in all of Le Jeu d’enfant the purpose is the same, the aim is identical. These books thus call for readers who will also be open and capable of abandoning, if only for a time, their prejudices and presuppositions-not only those about reading (the “character,” the “story,” pre-Freudian psychology, the taste for tragedy, etc.) but also the ideological ones, that is, all the customary cliches prevalent in the culture. This is not so easy. For example, it is significant that most of the French readers of Marrakch Medine, who claimed to be sensitive to a certain poetic quality of the text, did not, however, feel themselves mobilized by the text’s effort toward Islam; they thus recuperated for themselves, under the iridescent colors of exoticism, all that this book tried to do in order to break down the wall of exoticism and specifically of “orientalism. ” The Moroccan readers, on the other hand, judged the book to be important in this connection.

As for the critic, he is a reader like any other, even if he is overwhelmed by his readings. What I just said is valid for him as well, neither more nor less. A literary criticism applied to these books must exhibit the same openness, the same availability, which clearly requires a rupture with certain modes of behavior, too, imprinted with Eurocentric ideology.

Finally, I think I stressed that “le biographique” in “French Version” is intended as “symbolized,” rather than directly enunciated. This is to say that it is a “biographique” which is filtered and transposed by the author, the “instance” which organizes, chooses, and writes, and which is representative of a place, a period, and of the currents, intersections, practices, feelings, ideas, and voices which make themselves heard there. It is not a “biographique” which simply incorporates events in the life of the citizen who bears the same name as the writer. And these are, really, two distinct characters-another reality that the “media” fiercely deny and repress. This duality is difficult to explain and analyze, and is the source of many misunderstandings. I really should have thought, back then, of taking a pseudonym.

CL: How are other media—radio and film—related to writing fiction for you?

CO: First, allow me an objection: for me, radio and cinema are no more “media” than are language or the book. They are materials, ones that are different from those on which is exercised the writing of a book: sounds, noises, music, spoken or sung dialogues, fixed or mobile images, etc. For several years radio and cinema accompanied the writing of my books: in radio, in the form of “radiophonic pieces” composed at the request of French or German stations and broadcast all over Europe; in cinema, in the form of f
ilm critiques published in La Nouvelle Revue francaise, Le Mercure de France, and Les Cahiers du cinema (a selection of these articles was published in 1981 by Gallimard-Cahiers du Cinema as Souvenirs ecran); and also in the form of film scenarios, two of which have been produced. Writing for radio or cinema is something entirely different from writing a text of literary fiction. The former are more social, more sociable activities. I practiced them with pleasure, as a welcome diversion from the absorbing work of writing—even a pleasant recreation. Most of my radio pieces are developments or “enlargements” of the short texts collected in Nebules and Navettes. Having said this, I don’t think that these exercises effected upon composite materials have ever had any influence on my writing. They are different domains.

‘First published in France in 1958 and winner of the prestigious Prix Medecis, The Mise-en-Scene takes place in the mountains of Morocco when the French still controlled North Africa. An engineer named Lassalle has been sent from France to plan a road through the mountains. Although Lassalle seems to be successful, he finds out that another engineer, Lessing, has preceded him, and that Lessing, as well as others, may have been murdered. In part a detective novel and in part an investigation into the nature of knowledge, The Mise-en-Scene is controlled by a tone and style that are truly remarkable.’ — Dalkey Archive Press

p.s. Hey. ** David Ehrenstein, Hi. I’ve heard that. ** Steve Erickson, Hi. Fripp can be a total a wizard. Oh, yeah, I understand re: ‘sober’. I guess I know people who refer to themselves as sober who’ve never drank alcohol or used drugs, so the term’s hazy to me. No, I haven’t heard the new Ozkharp & Manthe Ribane LP. Hm, when music is described as eclectic that’s often a warning sign to me for some reason, but I’m also intrigued now, and I’ll have a listen. Thank you. I know Coloured Balls, but maybe not that track. On it. ** Jamie, Thanks, man! Yeah, a slew of good news recently on PGL, so we’re, yes, chuffed is the right word. Ha ha, no, I ultimately don’t care who wins the World Cup really. I just thought it was odd that some part of me had a second-long ‘hey wait’ moment re: your elbow towards ‘our’ team. I think I mostly want them to win because it’ll get really exciting and joyously apocalyptic in the streets of Paris if they do, and all that much happiness is very beautiful to sideswipe. Mm, I think Z and G, like me, are trying to psyche themselves into a state of productive optimism while tamping down the feeling of ‘rescue me from this relentlessly hungry script’. Oh, Jarret Kobek is putting out a Baal book, that is very interesting and a big lure. Huh. Okay, I’m even more on it. I don’t know the Creepers version of ‘BoF’. The first Feelies album, that’s a really good call, yeah. And Television, of course. Those are really structured solos. I like that kind. I guess I was mostly thinking of show-offy ‘look at my mastery’ kind of guitar soloing or the ‘jamming’ kind of Grateful Dead and billion offshoots type of meandering groove-maintaining play or something. I don’t know. Yeah, the Brussels thing sounds quite complicated for totally rational reasons. Very good luck with the weighing and sorting. Thursday was … okay. I had to draft up some TV script revision notes for Z and G and I to discuss at a meeting today, so I did that for a fair amount. Z and I have to select the film that will close out the first evening of the Lincoln Center event, a film that ‘resonates’ with PGL, by Monday, and I hunted my memory for ideas because he and I are going to spend a day talking and watching possible films and deciding this weekend. Not much else. It wasn’t overly hot outside, which was a boon. Did you de-gliutch the software? And what did you do during this day tagged Friday? I hope it put its money where your heart is. Peanut saucy love, Dennis. ** _Black_Acrylic, Thanks a lot, Ben! The Deller film sounds very promising indeed. I can’t imagine it won’t flood some corner the net. Gucci and Frieze … why does that marriage both spook me and constitute no surprise whatsoever? ** Misanthrope, I don’t know if she knows Kessler’s work, actually. I’m seeing her shortly. I’ll ask. I think she would. Like it. Eek, ugh, shit, car trouble. I think when cars fuck up, it’s very disrespectful to their owners. So I guess I would be a master rather than a slave if I were one or the other. Man, hoping for the best for it/you. And for your oven. And for your novel even if it doesn’t need my god damned hoping. ** H, Hi. I’m glad you had fun! And thank you about the posts! Take care. ** Bill, It’s true I had pre-pegged you as a possible co-interested party re: Kessler’s work. Right again! I wish your work was fun. I wish my work of the moment was fun. Why is work being such a prick to us at the moment? (That’s a rhetorical question). ** Right. Need an interesting book to read? How about the one up above? Claude Ollier is the least known and most under-celebrated writer/member of the Nouveau Roman, and that book up above is one of the very few novels of his that has been translated into English, and, yeah, I recommend it. See you tomorrow.
