Poetry. Translated from the French by Keith Waldrop. Real and fictional characters (Mrs. Lindbergh, Gertrude Stein, William Burroughs, Billy Budd or the Kid) circulate through the four parts of FOUR CUT-UPS, OR, THE CASE OF THE RESTORED VOLUME which, in the way of a mobile, uses constant movement to construct a precise form out of fragmented perceptions, ideas, stories, quotations. A form that gives a strangely uncanny sheen to the most realistic details.
