At the heart of this book lies attempts to read: reading here being understood as the openness to the possibility of another; a relation that occurs prior to any semantic or formal identification, and, therefore, prior to any attempt at assimilating, or appropriating, what is being read to the one who reads.

Thus, an event.

It opens with Lim Lee Ching's reading of this book; a reading before your reading, as it were. And is followed by Jeremy Fernando's attempts to respond to the many Roland Barthes -- all whilst foregrounding the risk that, even as one attempts to read as openness to the possibility of another, all reading potentially re-writes the other; that his reading may well be an inscribing of his R.B.; that whilst reading it, you may well be making your very own R.B.. In the midst of which, you will find a piano score composed by Jachin Pousson: which is both a nod to the fact that Barthes was a pianist, and also a note to the musicality of the thought of Roland Barthes.

The hope is that these readings bring, open the possibility of, pleasure: not just for the one who reads, but perhaps even for -- if one allows oneself to imagine -- the text. For the one we call, name -- can do nothing but name -- Roland Barthes.

From the Back Cover:

There is something Shakespearean in a reader's ability to write while reading. We have to deeply thank Jeremy Fernando for having given us such a sensitive, rhythmical and clever book about the glorious birth of a voice in everyone. He helps us see in the dark.
 
-- Philippe Beck

About the Author:

Jeremy Fernando is the Jean Baudrillard Fellow at the European Graduate School, where he is also a Reader in Contemporary Literature & Thought. He works in the intersections of literature, philosophy, and the media; and has written eleven books -- including Reading Blindly, Living with Art, and Writing Death. His work has been featured in magazines and journals such as Berfrois, CTheory, TimeOut, and VICE, amongst others; and he has been translated into Spanish and Slovenian. Exploring other media has led him to film, music, and art; and his work has been exhibited in Seoul, Vienna, Hong Kong, and Singapore. He is the editor of the thematic magazine One Imperative; and a Fellow of Tembusu College at the National University of Singapore.   
  
Lim Lee Ching teaches interdisciplinary subjects at SIM University, Singapore. He is the editor of the Singapore Review of Books.

Jachin Pousson is an American musician, composer, and sound designer, currently living in Riga, Latvia. He began performing in Singapore as a drummer and lyricist, leading to numerous international festival and showcase appearances over a 5-year stretch. Simultaneously he participated in humanitarian efforts in Asia, Africa, and Eastern Europe, where he often took on the additional role of documenting the work in writing, film, photography, or sound recording, making many personal recordings of his own. Subsequently he moved to Copenhagen for a conservatory education in music composition at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in 2010. Drawn to the musical aesthetic of the Baltics, he later moved to Latvia and completed his Masters studies in composition at Jazep Vitols Latvian Music Academy in 2015. At present he remains an active musician and composer in Riga, in both the academic and electro-acoustic scenes.
