Fiction. Translated from the French by Jordan Stump. "'Twelve little machines to make death and failure, ' Redonnet calls the twelve characters--or the twelve stories--we find in this book, and it's true: every tale we find here tells the same story, albeit in twelve different forms, the story of a kind of erasure, of disappearance and undoing, owing to the characters' fatal need to make of themselves a copy of another"--From the translator's introduction. Marie Redonnet has published five novels, a book of stories, and a book of poems. Leaping Dog Press has released the poems and short stories in English translation for the first time. Jordan Stump teaches at University of Nebraska, Lincoln. He has published three previous volumes of fiction by Marie Redonnet
