267 Michel Butor: A Study of His View of the World and a Panorama of His Work 1954-1974
Jennifer Waelti-Walters
Victoria, British Columbia, Canada Sono Nis Press 1977 0919462332 / 9780919462335 First Hardcover Fine Very Good+ Jacket Signed
First Edition, SIGNED by the author, in clean dust jacket. Very clean brown cloth boards with darker brown lettering on spine. No fading or wear.

Clean dust jacket has one short closed edge tear (1/2:). Enclosed in new archival quality removable mylar cover. Michel Butor is internationally recognized as one of the leading avante garde writers of France. He has written poetry, fiction, drama, criticism, and aphorisms; he has also cut across all the usual boundaries and created books, and portfolios, and even boxes, which not only include writings but also prints, found objects, and recordings. Faced with this complex and fascinating figure, Jennifer Waelti-Walters has chosen rather to explore and explain the thought and the universe of Butor than to perpetuate the usual trudging chronological survey. The result is a book which is as imaginbative and creative as the work of its subject. 025936
