About the Book

'La Chamade' is a facsimile of Francois Sagan's novel of that name with all the text removed other than sentences beginning with the word 'She...' up until the first punctuation. By removing most of the source text and leaving space where the removed words were it transforms the novel into a book of original concrete poetry.

'La Chamade' is one of a series of seven parallel narratives. When read together the seven books seem to provide alternative views of a very similar story.
