In his second “novel,” Newspaper, the acclaimed writer, photographer, and artist Edouard Levé made perhaps his most radical attempt to remove himself from his own work. Made up of fictionalized newspaper articles, arranged according to broad sections―some familiar, some not―Newspaper gives us a tour of the modern world as reported by its supposedly impartial chroniclers. Much of this “news” is quite sad, some is funny, but the whole serves as a gory parody of the way we have been taught to see our lives and the lives of our fellow human beings.
