RUBBISH, Robert
The Poetess of the Pyramids. Notes Towards a Fictional Memoir

One of the founders of the hugely influential Le Gun magazine, Robert Rubbish brings his humour, wit, and fascination with bohemian intellectualism to this tale of an Egyptian poet exiled in Paris who becomes the best-known female surrealist poet and authors sixteen books of poetry. Her thoughts and the experiences of her colourful life are told through a series of imaginary notes recorded for her memoirs. They sketch a portrait of her inner world, her days spent smoking cigars on café terraces, and drifting across the city of light in search of objects of desire and magic, with a lion at her side.
