Revue de presse :

First published in the US in 2001, Markson s This Is Not a Novel finally waded across the Atlantic courtesy of the enterprising CB Editions this year. A swirl of unattributed quotations from other authors, an energising expression of readerly ennui and a meditation on mortality, it felt like a book one had unconsciously been waiting to discover. Geoff Dyer, Guardian Books of the Year 2010 Magnificent, a compilation that so exceeds the scatter of its parts that one must take some time to ponder why this should be . . . It s almost impossible to stop turning the pages.
Sven Birkerts, New York Observer

David Markson s This Is Not a Novel is a sustained meditation on a single question: Against death, what consolation, if any, is art? Markson constantly toggles back and forth between celebrating the timelessness of art and mocking such grandiosity, and the book forces me to ask myself, What do I push back with? Maybe art, and if so, barely.
David Shields A daring tour de force (yet again), just the kind of novel only Markson would take on do with such uncompromising elan.
Paul West

Reads as addictively as an airport thriller . . . masterful. --Bookforum

Biographie de l'auteur :

David Markson ( one of America s most original voices TLS) died in New York in June 2010. He had been making original, allusive, daring fictions for over four decades. His other books include Springer s Progress, Reader s Block and Vanishing Point. Wittgenstein s Mistress (1988) was acclaimed by David Foster Wallace as A work of genius . . . an erudite, breathtakingly cerebral novel whose prose is crystal and whose voice rivets and whose conclusion defies you not to cry.

Description du livre COUNTERPOINT, United States, 2001. Paperback. État : New. Counterpoint Pb.. 208 x 140 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is Not a Novel is a novel like no other, with the possible exception of the author s own Reader s Block, which Anne Beattie hailed as a work of genius. . This is Not a Novel is a highly inventive work that drifts genre-less somewhere in between fiction, nonfiction, and psychological memoir. In the opening pages a narrator, called only Writer, announces that he is weary unto death of making up stories, not to mention inventing character sand contemplating plot, setting, theme. Yet the writer is determined to seduce the reader into turning pages-and to get somewhere, nonetheless. What follows are pages crammed with astonishingly fascinating literary and artistic anecdotes, quotations, and cultural curiosities. All this is leavened with Markson s deliciously ironic wit and laughter, so that when the writer does indeed finally get us somewhere, it s the journey that has mattered, not the arrival.
