L’âge d’homme, Michel Leiris’ Autobiographical masterpiece

This is my first edition of L’âge d’homme by Michel Leiris. This book had a profound impact on my conception of how autobiography might be written. Leiris writes as if the danger is so close to his truth, that he risks death like the matador. It’s a grandiose notion of truth and authenticity. However it’s a powerful narrative of his early years.

I recently published an updated scan.
