The Field Is Lethal

Suzanne Doppelt, Cole Swensen

Translated from the French by Cole Swensen.

The supernatural, ventriloquism, table-turning, magic carpets, ghosts, The Field Is Lethal is immersed in a late nineteeth-century spiritualism. Borrowing freely from folklore and anecdote, Doppelt mixes oblique references, catching us in the sound and play of language as much as of ideas. Well-known as a photographer, Doppelt juxtaposes her text with delicate, eerie images. As Avital Ronell writes in her Postface for the book, we appreciate here  her manner, her astonishing modalities, the precision of her cuts.
