Bizot’s review looks back on post World War II literature until the end of the 1980s. “100 key books, an opportunity to clarify ideas…” some time after the fall of the Berlin Wall.
On the cover the famous poster of the Warhol/Basquiat exhibition at the Shafrazi gallery in 1986, as a conclusion of cultural history since 1945.
The selection of these books and themes also reflects the thinking of Actuel: Miller, Foucault, Barthes, Camus, Beckett, Beauvoir, Tom Wolfe, Huxley, Sagan, Nabokov, Frantz Fanon, Kerouac, Nizan, Sartre, Vaneigem, Philip K Dick, Perec, Franz Herbert…a very interesting issue putting literature and its immediate context into perspective.
