thanks to a book buying orgy in Shakespeare and Co. inspired by a visit to the Patti Smith exhibition at Fondation Cartier, Paris I am now revelling in Les Depeuples. Choreography? ART ART ART!!!

The Lost Ones (the final Residua in this collection) is incredible. Anyone who is a fan of Mr. Beckett and has not come across this text must.
