About this title

Synopsis:

The long-awaited first biography of one of the 20th century's greatest revolutionaries, this book includes rare, never-before published materials. Bracken provides readers with an abundance of material on this reclusive historical figure who refused all interviews. 12 photos.

Review:

Guy Debord was one of the founders of the situationist movement of the 1960s; his Society of the Spectacle has become an indispensable text for anyone seeking to understand the pop culture of global capitalism. But despite the fame and notoriety he accrued during the Paris street revolution of 1968, he did his best to escape the burden of celebrity, refusing all interviews, publishing very little, and spending most of his time in bars. ("I wrote much less than most people who write," he once conceded, "but I drank much more than most people who drink.") Len Bracken copes with the dearth of biographical information by focusing primarily on Debord's writings and "anti-films" and his relationship to France's political and philosophical avant-garde. Numerous photographs identify key figures for the reader and give a sense of the turmoil of the '68 riots. This is an interesting historical supplement to, but not a substitute for, reading Debord's work.
