About the Author

Henri Michaux (1899-1984), born in Belgium, studied mysticism as a young man and traveled throughout South America and Asia before settling in Paris. He wrote more than twenty volumes of poetry and prose and showed paintings he created under the influence of mescaline. In 1965 he was awarded the French National Prize for Letters but refused the award, saying that it threatened his independence.
David Ball has translated many books from French. He was awarded the French-American Foundation Translation Prize for non-fiction in 2014 and the MLA Prize for Outstanding Translation of a Literary Work in 1996.

Reviews
