Dying

French Literature Series
René Belletto
Translated by Alexander Hertich

Take several genre novels telling similar stories of love and death—a spy novel, a romance, an adventure tale—mix them together so that items and images from each start popping up in the others, add playful asides—such as a several-page historical digression on the etymology of the word “prison”—and a collagist’s sensibility, and you might end up with the untethered celebration of writing that is René Belletto’s very strange and funny and surprising novel Dying.
