Paris, 31 March 1999
Dear Sir: When reading your books, I often think of the verse by Rene Char: "Lucidity is the closest injury to the sun." Your work is actually of a rare power, an unbelievable effectiveness. Your denunciation of the system is implacable and, by expressing the decomposition in medical terms, confers upon it an almost definitive character. Editor at Fayard of the works of Guy Debord, who is close to you, I have wanted to meet you to express several wishes to you. Not having your address, I allow myself to let you have mine (...). Hoping to receive news from you, I beg you, dear sir, to accept the expression of my best wishes.
