Auteur: Soupault, Philippe
Titel: Last nights of Paris
Sub titel:

Written in 1928 by one of the founders of the Surrealist movement, and translated the following year by William Carlos Williams (the two had been introduced in Paris by a mutual friend), `Last Nights of Paris' is related to Surrealist novels such as `Nadja' and `Paris Peasant', but also to the American expatriate novels of its day such as `Day of the Locust'. The story concerns the narrator’s obsession with a woman who leads him into an underworld that promises to reveal the secrets of the city itself' and in Williams’ wonderfully direct translation it reads like a lost great american novel. A vivid portrait of the city that entranced both its native writers and the Americans who traveled to it in the twenties, `Last Nights of Paris' is a rare collaboration between the literary circles at the root of both French and American modernism.
