FROM THE PUBLISHER - This wild and funny novel by a man whom Henry Miller has long championed as one of the major writers of our time, describes the last flamboyant years of one Thérëse Eglantine, a great French actress who is nearing eighty. The novel opens with a frenzied description, all flailing legs and flying dentures, as the London Daily Telegraph notes, of the aged actress making love with a tattooed legionary in a sordid hotel near Les Halles. Thérèses best friend is shown to be a beautiful young woman who was born without legs, and whose servant is a tongueless American Negro. And the barkeeper, whose murder triggers off the whole plot of the novel, obtains his amorous successes by allowing susceptible customers to inspect his innards through a surgical window in his stomach. The action moves at a spanking pace from the rehearsal at which Thérèse strips naked and recites Villons famous lament for vanished beauty to her no less sensational funeral. In the meantime we are treated to a brilliant evocation of post-war Paris. This roman a clef is set in the hysterical days following the Liberation of Paris and is based in part on director Louis Jouvets famous 1946 production of Giraudouxs THE MAD WOMAN OF CHAILLOT. In thin disguise and wild caricature, the most celebrated directors, actors, writers, and rivals are transformed into a rostrum of amazing characters. By using the device of a play within a novel, Cendrars has created a double world of the extravagant in which life is indistinguishable from drama. As the Daily Telegraph further noted when the novel was published in England, it is almost incredible that we should have had to wait until now to read Blaise in English.. Blaise Cendrars (September 1, 1887 - January 21, 1961) was born in 1887 of mixed Swiss and Scottish descent. At the age of fifteen he swung down from a fifth-floor balcony to escape his parents and begin his world traveling. Employed by a jewel merchant, he first went through Russia, Persia, and China; from then on he traveled everywhere, living by his wits, making films, serving as a corporal in the Foreign Legion during World War I, and writing. Cendrars died in Paris in 1961. inventory #20456, flaws: name & date penned on fly, well there is the weight!. ther is fornaw a sliicghtwarp/bend from bad shelving. , dusty It could crush a small child or dog..
