Notes: "Originally published by Éditions P.O.L, Paris, France (Calme-toi, Lison, 2016)
"[This book] presents an interior monologue...Louise Bourgeois speaks, speaks to herself, reviews bits of her long life, in disorder. Everything is imaginary here, it's not a biography. But everything is plausible, the moods, the projections, the resentments, the modesty. It is the portrait, from memory, of a woman who has devoted her life to her art, a life that merges with the century, and has been belatedly recognized as one of the major artists of our time. It's funny, touching, empathic, respectful and documented. This book of Jean Frémon is definitely fiction. It expresses from within both the tragic tensions bordering on neurosis and the childlike lightness of one of the greatest artists of the century"--Translation of original French publisher's description.
