All the king's horses by Michèle Bernstein( Book )

"Michele Bernstein's first novel, All the King's Horses (1960), is one of the odder and more elusive, entertaining, and revealing documents of the Situationist International. At the instigation of her first husband, Guy Debord, Bernstein agreed to write a potboiler to - allegedly - help swell the the group's coffers. She turned it instead into a witty and sensitive, yet anything but sincere, youth novel at once glamorizing and lampooning their own Parisian cultural environment." "Inspired by the success of Francoise Sagan's bestselling novel Bonjour Tristesse, Bernstein borrowed from both Sagan and Choderlos de Laclos' Dangerous Liaisons, concocting a roman a clef that succeeded on several levels. A moneymaker for the most radical front of the French avant-garde, the novel (by its very success) demonstrated the bankruptcy of contemporary French letters and the Situationist contempt for the psychological novel, while (perhaps unintentionally) holding up a playful mirror to the private lives of two of the Situationist International's most important members. All the King's Horses is a slippery rewrite of Dangerous Liaisons with Debord playing the role of cold libertine, Bernstein as his cohort, and disguised walk-on roles by the likes of the painter Asger Jorn and others."--Jacket

in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Eighty-four letters and cards written by Guy Debord and his wife Michele Bernstein to Marcel Mariën, dating from 1954 to 1963. Most of the letters relate to the publication of articles in Mariën's journal Les Lèvres nues. Debord sends editorial suggestions, submits articles, updates Mariën on bookstore inventories and sales, and discusses his own journal Potlatch. Debord peppers his letters with comments and rumors regarding artistic and political subjects, including Breton and the surrealists, the boycott of the 1956 avant-garde show in Marseille and Stalin's rise to power. Mariën and Debord's close relationship terminated in 1957, the year Debord formed the Internationale Situationniste group

The night by Michèle Bernstein( )

1 edition published in 2013 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Translated from La Nuit, 1961, by Clodagh Kinsella, with a new preface for the English edition by the author. ‘La Nuit is about the Paris of 1957. It’s a love story, a story of lost love, for the streets.’--From the new preface. It is the second novel of Michèle Bernstein, a founding member of the Situationist International. Following All the King’s Horses, it is parodying the style of the nouveau roman, with its elongated sentences and non-linear sense of time and place. As its protagonists drift through the streets of Paris, through the entanglements of a ménage à trois, and the ennui of a summer holiday on the Côte d’Azur, The Night is littered with détournements – unattributed quotations and knowing winks at situationist practices – and clues that give insight into the lives and spirit of both the author and her husband Guy Debord.; Edited by Everyone Agrees
