Summary "This book provides sustained encounters with a small number of writers who fascinated Deleuze - T. E. Lawrence, Melville, D. H. Lawrence, Tournier, Beckett - and also notes his early interest in the writing of Helene Cixous. Putting to work his belief that 'every work is a journey' the study uses a transversal theme of travel and locomotion to demonstrate the vitality and productivity of Deleuzian thought when applied to literary texts."--BOOK JACKET
