About the Author

Michael Loewy is Research Director at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique and Lecturer at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales.Robert Sayre is Professor of Anglophone Literatures at the University of Marne-la-Vallee.


From reviews of the French edition: "Instead of exploiting the cliches of melancholy, of exhibitionism, and of the langorous ego, Robert Sayre and Michael Lowy follow the path of rebellion."--Roland Jaccard, Le Monde "This beautiful and generous book ... is a marvelous utopian oasis shining on the horizon of the desert of banality and perplexity where we have been lost."--Isabel Maria Loureiro, Em Tempo (Brazil)
