Unknown - 2010
Rate this:
During the last eighteen years of his life (1968-86), Jean Genet was preoccupied with the struggles of the disenfranchised and displaced:among them, the Black Panthers, the Baader-Meinhof, and the Palestinians. This book by Hadrien Laroche, Jacques Derrida's last doctoral student, is a careful philosophical and historical reading (though fascinating as a political thriller) of the acts and thoughts of various international political movements in the seventies and the eighties, and of Genet's own experiences and writings. It describes the adventures of a writer engaged with the "real world.
