The first anthology to span the oeuvre of the late writer Edmond Jabs, including pieces previously unpublished in English. It is translated from the French and includes an introductory essay. "It is as if we had lost nothing, so near does this book of the book seem to the voice and presence of Edmond Jabs. All his rethinking and refeeling of the word and world are here. His massive and knowing melancholy, somehow radiant, is a shared one, as Jabs knew how to share: 'Our book is for tomorrow.' For today too"-Mary Ann Caws.
