Double Exposure

Novel, translated from the French by David Lobdell (Ottawa, Oberon Press, 1988)

A novelist inquires on a strange individual that he spotted on the street watching the traffic all day long, or so it seems. Soon he discovers that he is facing, in fact, an exhibitionist who has a long record of exposures in his past. One day he is incarcerated and castrated. Among the numerous questions the novel raises is the place of mild madness within the life of the modern city.
