FSG goes into the trailer business
Check it out. The book in question is Gregoire Bouillier's The Mystery Guest, translated by Lorin Stein. It sounds very good, I am curious (it also sounds vaguely reminiscent of Harry Mathews' My Life in CIA, which I read the first half of this summer & then had to return to the library--it wasn't that I didn't like it, I did, but something about its cool clinical masculinity struck me as ever-so-slightly offputting, and I have not quite bothered to request it again at the library). However I will not hold this against Bouillier. . . .
