Read full description of the books:
Recommended for: the unoffendable reader in search of artistic avant-garde narrative streams of unpalatable filth that stabs at your sense of decency.
This extremely pornographic, epic narrative is not only utterly and completely unpalatable, it is artistically inspired and enthralling. It truly IS for that unoffendable lot who will reach into the bonfire to save Love’s precious art, and Life’s freedom of expression. Many would not brave the fire for this one.
[Excerpts taken from Preface by Roland Barthes]
Eden, Eden, Eden is a free text: free of all subjects, of all objects, of all symbols, written in space (the abyss or blind-spot) where the traditional constituents of discourse … would be superfluous.
It is hard to breathe when reading this book. There are no hard stops. There are no periods. There are only spaces, pauses that seem to genuflect to the next sequence of thoughts. There is no space between the spaces in between. Only stale air, and stagnant streams. It’s exhilarating, nauseating, and unpalatably vulgar.
Guyotat’s language must be “entered”, not by believing it, becoming party to an illusion, participating in fantasy, but by writing the language with him in his place, signing it along with him.
Truth: Guyotat’s language MUST be entered, rough, terrifyingly unflinching, without palliative relief or lucidity.
[H]e views the act of writing as a physical secretion, a feral expectoration of deadly poisons which are remorselessly savage and interrogative in their visceral impact upon the reader.
He writes as if masturbating his mind, on and on with wanton attention to every stroke, every hitch, every catch in breath. He pounds you into conscious unconsciousness, exhausting you with ceaseless, savage assaults to your psyche.
[N]o Story and no Sin (surely the same thing), we are left simply with language and lust, not the former expressing the latter, but the two bound together in a reciprocal metonymy, indissoluble.”
There is no clean space here. There is only an absolute and filthy whole of a story. There is no separation of perversion and life; it is one in the same. Each word is a perversion. Each space filled with rancorous, fetid, filth. There are no characters, only objects of action and reaction.
As all art should, Eden Eden Eden exists without reason or apology. It is fiction at its most ferocious. It is pornography in its most naked, powerful, raw state. There is NO DOUBT that it IS art. This book sits acutely on the edge of nothing. It waits. It invades you. It LIVES without breathing, only slightly beneath the bloody, rancid pool of sleepless dreams. It simply IS, without question or answer. ART.

Read information about the authorBorn in Bourg-Argental, Loire, Guyotat wrote his first novel, Sur un cheval, in 1960. He was called to Algeria in the same year. In 1962 he was found guilty of desertion and publishing forbidden material. After three months in jail he was transferred to a disciplinary centre. Back in Paris, he got involved in journalism, writing first for France Observateur, then for Nouvel Observateur. In 1964, Guyotat published his second novel Ashby.
In 1967, he published Tombeau pour cinq cent mille soldats (later released in English as Tomb for 500,000 Soldiers). Based on Guyotat's ordeal as a soldier in the Algerian War, the book earned a cult reputation and became the subject of various controversies, mostly because of its omnipresent sexual obsessions and homoeroticism.
In 1968, Guyotat became a member of the French Communist Party, which he left in 1971.
Eden, Eden, Eden came out in 1970 with a preface by Michel Leiris, Roland Barthes and Philippe Sollers (Michel Foucault's text was received late and therefore didn't appear as a preface). This book was banned from being publicized or sold to under-18s. A petition of international support was signed (notably by Pier Paolo Pasolini, Jean-Paul Sartre, Pierre Boulez, Joseph Beuys, Pierre Dac, Jean Genet, Simone de Beauvoir, Joseph Kessel, Maurice Blanchot, Max Ernst, Italo Calvino, Jacques Monod, and Nathalie Sarraute). François Mitterrand, and Georges Pompidou tried to get the ban lifted but failed. Claude Simon (who won the Nobel Prize in 1985) resigned from the jury of the Prix Médicis after the prize wasn't awarded to Eden, Eden, Eden.
