“[…] The typewriter was full of dust, not covered, as it should have been. To complete the work, Leslie would cover it and I would uncover it, so that
she would imagine that I had written something, and she was also happy because after a day or two I would trade the written sheets with the unwritten ones. In short, I had nothing to do and I considered this the best of all possible activities.“
It is neither a novel nor an essay nor just another book.
It does not have a single incipit or a single narrative voice. The themes are multiple, they add up and subtract from each other, creating a polyphony that can sometimes be disturbing.
Habeas Corpus and Inverse Code are more like theatrical texts, with the addition of graphics and images that give the sense – or the nonsense – of a unique and original work of its kind.
The reader can open the book from one side or the other having fun exploring correspondences and assonances.
A book that is a graphic work, conceived and realised with the aim of integrating words and images and making full use of the blank page, while indulging creative taste and instinct.
