Hervé Guibert: Voices of the Self
Liverpool University Press

This chapter examines a collection of short stories (Mauve le vierge), a stage play (Vole mon dragon), two books without generic subtitle (Les Gangsters/Fou de Vincent), a novel (L'Incognito), and a text between short story and novel (La chair fraîche). It evaluates the various genres used by Guibert between 1988 and 1990, with respect to the project of the voices of the self by concentrating on the identity of the narrator and on the narrative voices. The chapter also considers the relationship between truth and falsehood.
