Autoportrait

Autoportrait


In this awesome and sobering self-portrait, Edouard Lev? hides not anything from his readers, starting up his complete existence, kind of at random, in a string of declarative sentences. "Autoportrait" is a actual, mental, sexual, political, and philosophical triumph. past "sincerity," Lev? works towards an objectivity so radical it could possibly move for crudeness, triviality, even banality: the writer has stripped himself naked. With the strength of a suite of maxims or morals, Lev?'s prose turns out at the start to be an autobiography with no sentiment, as if written via a machine--until, during the accumulation of element, and the author's dry, quizzical tone, we discover ourselves disarmed, enthralled, and enraptured via not anything under the best fiction... made totally of facts.
