Warscapes, the international journal of political and cultural criticism, is running a preview of Jean-Marie Gleize’s Tarnac, which is introduced with new remarks by the author. Read more here.

I claim for this book a place in a tradition of writing that of a certain objectivisme. There is, in these pages and the horizon of this multilinear narrative, something like a concrete utopia of a community based on the refusal of the standards imposed on us: “values” (profit, competition, mutual antagonism …) that govern our capitalist market society, called “democratic” and “liberal.”–Gleize

Joey Yearous-Algozin’s piece on Trisha Low’s Compleat Purge appears today via Lemon Hound, here.

Rather than asserting the radicalness of its techniques, The Compleat Purge removes conceptualism’s novelty, acknowledging it as one form among many… [Low’s book is] not so much unreadable, but is proof that perhaps what we imagine as reading does not exist. It is not that it died, for that would be to assert that reading was born or at one time came into being. Let’s just say that what we call reading already happened without us and we are forced to mimic the empty gestures of an actual reader we will never get to meet.–Yearous-Algozin
