Souvenirs du Triangle d'Or

Paris: Les Editions de Minuit, 1978. First Edition. INSCRIBED in blue ink to novelist and film theorist William F. Van Wert: "pour Bill Van Wert/mon amical souvenir/Robbe-Grillet." The star of the Minuit logo on the front panel is hand-colored in the same ink, presumably by Robbe-Grillet. Text in French. Van Wert corresponded with Robbe-Grillet during his dissertation "The Theory and Practice of the Cine-Roman" (Arno Press, 1978)."

After the Nouveau Roman movement dissolved, its most prominent author and theorist, Alain Robbe-Grillet, experimented further with the novel's structure, incorporating his experience as a filmmaker, and by the late 1970s was making intertextual "Collage Novels" integrating works he completed in collaboration with artists such as Rene Magritte, Jasper Johns, and Irina Ionesco.

"Souvenirs du Triangle d'Or" was later translated by J. A. Underwood and published by Grove Press in 1984 as "Recollections of the Golden Triangle."

Very Good plus in wrappers. Wrappers very lightly soiled, light foxing at the spine, rear panel scuffed with a single corner crease, slight spine lean. John Leo, "Alain Robbe-Grillet Bibliography."
