About this product
- DescriptionWelcome to Wal-Mart. On their break, a cashier and her fellow workers flick through celebrity gossip magazines. 'See you Later, Celine, ' says a headline. What's wrong with Celine? Why is she turning her back on her glamorous public life, her adoring fans? And how is her story connected to the story of an unkwn woman on the facing page? It's t. Until the Oracle intervenes. This wild and slippery fantasy from French-Canadian writer Olivier Choiniere explores our insatiable appetite for private lives made public. In a new translation by Caryl Churchill, Bliss is -a clever, disturbing piece about the damage done by vicarious living- (Financial Times).
