Pascal Quignard : Towards the Vanishing Point, Hardback Book

Pascal Quignard : Towards the Vanishing Point Hardback


The award-winning writer Pascal Quignard (1948-) has published many texts and has collaborated with painters, musicians and filmmakers.

Yet despite the popularity and critical recognition of his work, Quignard remains a discreet and fleeting presence in the current cultural landscape, sharing with other contemporary French writers the belief that literature is a form of self-effacement.

In this first critical study in English, Lea Vuong offers a comprehensive survey of Quignard's still growing /uvre by examining his specific attempts to produce disappearance through - and for - writing.

His texts and collaborations appear as vanishing acts where the writer, like the figure on the Tomb of the Diver found in Paestum, remains suspended between presence and absence.
