This pseudonymous account of surrealism by Raoul Vaneigem offers an answer to the question, “What was living and what was dead in Surrealism?” Though blistering in its criticism of surrealism’s artistic and political aporias, the book identifies the “radioactive fragment of radicalism” that the movement never quite shed. An excellent situationist critique of one its forerunners. Translated by Donald Nicholson-Smith.
