KIRKUS REVIEW

Literally a scrapbook--from Daudet-ish childhood scenes in the provinces to notes on a play to dreams, many, many dreams and his interpretations thereof in random sequence. But primarily the Rumanian born French playwright best identified with the Absurd muses about life (""the present, presentness, plentitude"") always overshadowed by thoughts of death--a constant dread more personal than universal although war and killing and gratuitous horror sometimes impinge. Occasionally there are comments on other writers, among them Brecht, and the new novel. A small, very special book for his devotees.
