Literary synopsis

In October 1947 Gaston Gallimard agrees to publish a work defined as a novel in the form of a memoir. L’Agrégation d’un Nom et d’un Messie, about which Georges Bataille wrote some pages in his magazine Critique: "The life of the young Isou is that of any teenager rotten by literature (and by unmentionable knowledge), but projected through the world by an impudence that shakes up - and wants to shake up: Isou is infinitely rude, immoral and irrational."
