This is the first title from La Presse, a new imprint of Fence Books publishing contemporary experimental French poetry in English translation. Publishing two new titles a year, the imprint will explore the rich variety of experimentation coming out of small French presses such as P.O.L. and Bleu du ciel, work that shares with much new American poetry the legacies of the radical Modernists. This book, precise and distilled, pushes at the limits of language and finds there a wonder with humanity at its center.

Author Biography - Claude Royet-Journoud
Since the 1970s, CLAUDE ROYET-JOURNOUD has been a leader in innovative French letters. Attentive to the experiments of Stein, Zukofsky, and others, his work is an important voice in the ongoing international conversation that emerged from the radical Modernism of the early twentieth century. KEITH WALDROP is the author of over twenty volumes of poetry and fiction, and has translated four other books by Royet-Journoud as well as works by Dominique Fourcade, Edmond Jabes, Charles Baudelaire, and others.
