Invitation to a Voyage

François Emmanuel
Translated by Justin Vicari

 In this collection of thematically related stories, celebrated Belgian author François Emmanuel shows his indebtedness to the great poetic iconoclasts of the French language—not least Charles Baudelaire, after whose famous poem this book was named. Here, Emmanuel invites the reader to journey to an uncanny place where our private longings and fears spill over into daily life; where lovers have each other investigated from a distance, or are brought together suddenly through shared dreams and fantasies. Like the artist who tries to paint fog and ends up by disappearing inside it, all of Emmanuel’s characters allow themselves to be consumed by their gentle manias, always hoping to attain some measure of victory over their own isolation.
