Hierarchy: A Night

The Piquerary twins remain, for the English-speaking world, among the undiscovered gems of Belgian surrealist writing, despite the presence of their work in Poetry magazine, Exquisite Corpse, and elsewhere.  I wrote a short introduction to their work a few years ago, for those who might be interested.  But perhaps the best way to get to know Gabriel and Marcel Piqueray is from this wonderful reading of a prose poem of theirs I translated with Jean-Luc Garneau.  It's an odd piece, more or less in the mode of Kafka's parables, and is read, here, by the actor Samuel West.
