Poetics of Work

ebook
As a state of emergency is declared in Lyon and protesters and police clash in the streets, a poet engages her father and near constant interlocutor in a hilarious and often angry exploration of the push to be employed and the pull to write. She spends her time reading accounts of life under the Third Reich and in Nazi language, investigating her mother's notes on Schiller, smoking, and eating bananas, as her bourgeois father pops in and out of her life, speaking down-to earth reason as winter gives way to spring. In a new novel by the author of Blue Self-Portrait, Noémi Lefebvre presents us with a comic, irreverent reckoning with the hegemony capitalism has on our language through language itself.
