Description

A memoir à la Stein and de Beauvoir, Intimate Journal is a trip around the world, a journey through time, and an exploration of the consistency of the individual, experiential and accumulative. Love, Japan, Paris, exhilarating moments of epiphany, motherhood and adventure are combined in this vivid portrait of existence lived in the search for ecstasy. Nicole Brossard is well-known for her non-fiction, poetry and fiction, and she is one of the earliest and most consistent transgressors of the lines between genres. Intimate Journal has been translated from its original French into Japanese (2000) and Spanish (Argentina, 2003).
