The roman faux

(p.191) Chapter Eight The roman faux
Hervé Guibert: Voices of the Self
Liverpool University Press

This chapter examines À l'ami qui ne m'a pas sauvé la vie (1990). Upon its release the book was mired in controversy, with the press pointing an accusatory finger at Guibert and his publisher because it was thought that some of the book's characters were obviously based on real people, in particular Michel Foucault under the guise of ‘Muzil’. The chapter attempts to separate the reception of À l'ami from its content, analysing it from the viewpoint of the voices of the self as a roman faux in the tradition of Guibert's other works.

Keywords:   Hervé Guibert, À l'ami qui ne m'a pas sauvé la vie, self, roman faux
