Reviews - What do customers think about Reading Writing?

A highly prized and recommended addition to personal and academic library collections  Oct 4, 2006
Julien Gracq was born in 1910 at Saint-Florent-le-Vieil where he still resides today as one of France's most eminent postwar writers. His body of work includes essays, literary criticism, journalism, and novels. A retiring figure, Julien Gracq refused the Goncourt Prize when it was awarded to him in 1951. A highly prized and recommended addition to personal and academic library collections, "Reading Writing" is the first English-language edition of 'En lisant en ecrivant' and will introduce him to an American readership as a man with a distinctive take on the subjective history of fiction and poetry, and who offers a personal meditation on the links between literature and the visual arts of painting and the cinema. Cracq's poetics are founded upon his understanding of the basic acts of reading and writing and the relationship between the writer and the writer's language. Also very highly recommended from Turtle Point Press are the English translations of Julien Graque's masterpieces of social and emotional literature: "The Shape of the City"; "The Narrow Waters"; and "King Cophetus".
