University of California Press,
A Fine copy in a Near Fine price-clipped dust jacket. These translations of 47 short narratives by 24 surrealist writers span the period from 1922 (two years before Andre Breton's Manifesto of Surrealism codified surrealist principles) to 1973 (four years after the dissolution of unified surrealist group activity in France). The selections have been chosen to illustrate the whole gamut of surrealist short narrative style, ranging from fully structured tales to products of "automatic" writing.
