  • An important French poet and art critic born in 1939, Fauchereau has been a Professor of American literature at the University of Texas at Austin, as well as at the State University of New York at Stony Brook (SUNY). A prolific author, Fauchereau has written numerous monographs on 20th-century art and artists, studying artists such as Fernand Leger and Georges Braque. Complete Fiction is composed of a series of often-elegant vignettes and reminiscences, fractured with great care and subtlety, all ably translated from the French by Ron Padgett and John Ashbery.

     

    Franck Andre Jamme is the author of thirteen books since 1981, as well as numerous editions illustrated by artists. Henri Michaux and Rene Char, who asked him to oversee the publication of his complete works by the Bibliotheque de la Pleiade, have praised his work. In 2005, he was awarded the “Grand Prix de Poesie de la Societe des Gens de Lettres” for his life’s work. Widely considered a specialist in contemporary tantric, brut, and tribal Indian art, he has curated a number of exhibitions, including one on tantric art at the Drawing Center, New York. He divides his time between Paris and Northern Burgundy. Black Square Editions has previously published two works by Jamme, the chapbook Extracts from the Life of a Beetle (translated by Michael Tweed) and The Recitation of Forgetting (translated by John Ashbery)
