9781619027145: This Is Not a Novel and Other Novels
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, 2016. Paperback. État : New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. David Markson was a writer like no other. In his novels, which have been called hypnotic, stunning, and exhilarating and earned him praise from the likes of Kurt Vonnegut and David Foster Wallace, Ann Beattie and Zadie Smith. Markson created his own personal genre. With crackling wit distilled into incantatory streams of thought on art, life, and death, Markson s work has delighted and astonished readers for decades. Now for the first time, three of Markson s masterpieces are compiled into one page-turning volume: This Is Not a Novel, Vanishing Point, and The Last Novel. In This Is Not a Novel, readers meet an author, called only Writer, who is weary unto death of making up stories, and yet is determined to seduce the reader into turning pages and getting somewhere. Vanishing Point introduces us to Author, who sets out to transform shoeboxes crammed with note cards into a novel. In The Last Novel, we find an elderly author (referred to only as Novelist ) who announces that, since this will be his final effort, he possesses carte blanche to do anything he damn well pleases. United by their focus on the trials, calamities, absurdities and even tragedies of the creative life, these novels demonstrate David Markson s extraordinary intellectual richness--leaving readers, time after time, with the most indisputably original of reading experiences.
