Product Overview

Literary Nonfiction. Art. Translated from the French by Cole Swensen. Jean Fr?mon writes about painters he loves, contemporary and otherwise, about writers, whose books are sometimes named, and who at other times stay unnamed. He visits each one at a crucial moment of his life, creating thus an essential and spiritual biography of each. The particular elegance of his writing and the form he uses make us privileged witnesses of his investigations.

"Jean Fr?mon's REAL LIFE OF SHADOWS delivers its dazzling r?cits with delicately calibrated irony. Fr?mon writes in "the words of others" tales of stunning quiet mystery. His painterly journey, ably translated by Cole Swensen, portrays a parallel present of chance and circumstance, where fragmented narrative, or narrative fragments, fall into the gaps as well as the text, intervals fulfilling inscription."?Norma Cole
