Synopsis:

The very first book-length study to focus on this seminal American author, "This Is Not a Tragedy" reviews David Markson's entire body of work, ranging from his early tongue-in-cheek Western and crime novels to contemporary classics such as "Wittgenstein's Mistress" and "Reader's Block." Having begun in parody, Markson's writing soon began to fragment, its pieces adding up to a peculiar sort of self-portrait--doubtful and unsteady--and in the process achieving nothing less than a redefinition of the novel form. Written on the verge of silence, David Markson's fiction represents an intimate, unsettling, and unique voice in the cacophony of modern letters, and "This Is Not a Tragedy" charts Markson's attempts to find, in art and language, the solace denied us by life.
