Death by Absinthe


Alternate and early drafts from Joanna Neborsky’s Illustrated Three-Line Novels: Félix Fénéon50 Watts continues to astonish (thank you, Ingrid).


‘Death by absinthe, kerosene, and sneeze: French men and women meet ample varieties of doom in Fénéon's nouvelles en trois lignes, 1,220 brief, grisly news items the author—a Parisian editor, critic, and anarchist—wrote in 1906 for the newspaper Le Matin.’
