Reprise et mise en procès du "Livre des questions".

Un enchaînement de "récits éclatés, d'aphorismes, de dialogues à travers le temps, l'espace, entre rabbins imaginaires."
Philippe Soupault, le poète( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in French and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
