Philippe Sollers is, quite simply, one of the most important post-war French writers, critics and public figures. The avant-garde journal Tel Quel, which he cofounded in 1960 with the writer and art critic Marcelin Pleynet, gave a voice to a whole generation of French theorists, philosophers, writers, & activists. Sollers was also at the forefront of the May 1968 student revolutions in Paris – an experience behind his “external polylogue,” the textual stream entitled H (1973), whose English translation is forthcoming with Equus Press in late 2014. Sollers’ most famous works include Nombres (1966), Lois (1972), Paradis (1981), or Femmes (1983).

“I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us. If the book we are reading doesn’t wake us up with a blow on the head, what are we reading it for?…we need the books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside us” // Franz Kafka, letter to Oskar Pollack, 27 January 1904
