Girl from Marseilles, The


This fictional memoir gives voice to the woman who haunts Andre Breton's 1927 Surrealist novel Nadja. Speaking from the sanitarium as World War II approaches, Nadja recounts her love affair with Breton while a matrix of archival and staged images of Paris construct the exquisite corpse of her memory.
