Poetry. Translated from the French by Cole Swensen. The supernatural, ventriloquism, table-turning, magic carpets, ghosts, THE FIELD IS LETHAL is immersed in a late nineteeth-century spiritualism. Borrowing freely from folklore and anecdote, Doppelt mixes oblique references, catching us in the sound and play of language as much as of ideas. Well-known as a photographer, Doppelt juxtaposes her text with delicate, eerie images. As Avital Ronell writes in her Postface for the book, we appreciate here "her manner, her astonishing modalities, the precision of her cuts."

I ll just spit it out: I find Suzanne Doppelt, as work and Dasein, as personality a category that, according to Schelling, has been severely underrated by philosophers, if not entirely banned from discursive precincts to be genuinely remarkable. It s been a while since I have considered her singularity and my own inability to nail it. I have reserved for her double occupancy on my imaginary wish list, as writer and photographer. She s up there with the best of them, and yet her discretion allows for little fanfare and only minutely disbursed portions of appreciation. --from the Postface by Avital Ronell
