About this title


Hallucinating Foucault is a love story, depicting the love between writer and reader in all its frightening intensity. Paul Michel is a literary master, a revolutionary writer who inspires his Reader with such devotion that he embarks on the strangest of quests: to liberate Paul Michel from the brutal system in which he's been incarcerated for the past ten years. But Michel is also a Reader, and his love for his lost Mentor has driven him into a mad, violent world, into which his Reader is gradually drawn, and from which there is no escape.


An intricate and self-reflective novel about that most delicate of relationships--meaning the one between writers and readers. The narrator, an anonymous graduate student, sets off on the trail of a French novelist named Paul Michel, who is currently confined to an asylum. Engineering his hero's release, the narrator finds himself enmeshed in bizarre love triangle, of which the three vertices are himself, the novelist, and the late Michel Foucault. Sex, it seems, can be made safe, but the oddball intimacy of reading cannot.
