René (Colette Thomas)
The Testament of the dead Daughter

translated by Catherine Petit & Paul Buck


Colette Thomas, one of Antonin Artaud’s “daughters of the heart” flashed briefly before an unsuspecting Parisian literary world after the war... then vanished. The book she published in 1954, under the pseudonym René, comprised letters to Antonin Artaud, accounts of her own early incarceration and suffering, along with tales wrenched from her tortured being. Despite some attention and knowledge of her book there has been no new French edition of Le Testament de la Fille morte. This translation is the first chance for the English-language reader to access the work.
