Conversations with Professor Y is an eminently satisfying reading experience. His eloquent gueule, or bad mouth, recognizably shocked and energized the language to a new vitality. Luce's savvy translation brings this idiosyncratic, demonically streetwise culture guru to life for English-speaking readers.

About Louis-Ferdinand Celine
Louis-Ferdinand Celine (1894-1961) was a French writer and doctor whose novels are antiheroic visions of human suffering. Accused of collaboration with the Nazis, Celine fled France in 1944 first to Germany and then to Denmark. Condemned by default (1950) in France to one year of imprisonment and declared a national disgrace, Celine returned to France after his pardon in 1951, where he continued to write until his death. His classic books include Journey to the End of the Night, Death on the Installment Plan, London Bridge, North, Rigadoon, Conversations with Professor Y, Castle to Castle, and Normance.
