Description 1 online resource (220 pages)
Summary Suffering from a fatal disease, Lucien Gracq travels to Paris to complete the epic poem he is writing and live out his last days. There he joins a secret writers' society, Le club des fugitifs, that guarantees to publish the work of its members anonymously, thus relieving them of the burdens of life, and more importantly, the disappointments of authorship. In Paris, Gracq finds himself crossing paths with a parade of phantasms, illustrious writers from the previous century - masters of identity, connoisseurs of eroticism, theorists of game and rule, emigres and Oulipeans. He flees from the deathly allure of the Fugitives, and towards the arms of his beloved - but it may be too late
