The world of publishing at regular intervals, slumming. The venerable house Stock and just shake the tree a little stunted by the end of the winter returned to announce? Ant noisily publication of Belle and Beast (Stock, ? 13.50, in para? Be February 28) , the book that the essayist Marcela Iacub has devoted to his liaison with Dominique Strauss-Kahn. Some media are obviously seized and whether to compare Marcela Iacub Christine Angot or evoke a “new twist in DSK case,” have made this release event. Whereof maintain the waiting, and leave the rumor take care of book promotion, which will seem all the more explosive he will have remained inaccessible to moment where we will the most talked.
What, too, join in the literature a sufficient dose of my communication? Triser perception the public has of the work when it will be revealed. Because the issue is complex: it must be able to both involve the greatest number and preserve the intellectual legitimacy of the author guarantees that the publishing house.
Marcela Iacub, refined and subtle lawyer, has published so far a dozen scholarly books on sex crimes, maternity or modesty, from a thorough knowledge of legal history, brought new elements to our knowledge of the evolution of morals. It is, at first glance, the opposite of a columnist people.
How then convince the public to rush fearlessly on Beauty and Beast? The solution chosen para? T, once the book read, innovative and for say everything flabbergasting. It is based on a strict division of r? Between the press and the book. A the first, raw truth, at second the thought, the metaphor, the amiable transformation of experience in fable. The author reports in the interview with Nouvel Observateur that initiated the operation, and about facts that are not in the book, which, moreover, does not name the former director of the IMF, while Magazine title: “My story with DSK.”
The idea is to saturate the minds of future readers of this evidence that Marcela Iacub publishes indeed a confession. One is well s? R warned that the latter is, to the yardstick of what is usually done, a little weird, that all this is of literature, but it must be an extra charm, non the negation of a authenticity of the testimony which is its main selling point.
FANTASIES AND FEELINGS
The book, driven by such forces, will probably, in fact, sold. However, we can doubt it is often read to the end, and not everyone is not disappointed u, as the confession abuts the construction and literary theory, which is struggling to convince herself. Marcela Iacub not telling her affair with Dominique Strauss-Kahn: it restores all the thoughts, fantasies and feelings that it inspired him. She tries to gather this experience in a concept where something its intellectual maestria we elsewhere finds, the concept of “cochon”, attempted identify the gross desire, without restraint, enjoyment as absolute liberation. “The pig is a jump, a voltage, a pulse to infinity.” Her lover is bearer of this fantastic animal. When he the leaves express themselves, sexually means, happiness is possible. The rest of the time, man, contemptuous, domineering and “redneck” has no interest, and evil wins.
This could have some poetic force, if the book was running in the Manichean alternating between celebration, repetitive, lyrical and often naive one, and vituperation, no less repetitive, though drier, against the other. If Iacub Marcela was able to get out of an in-between in which neither fully nor completely encanaill??e poet, she has only managed to give maximum efficiency at a promotion, so, para? Does not have else finality she herself.
