Comments Suicidio

  • Nat

    “Given that I am speaking to you, are you dead?”This particular book has been sitting on my e-book reader for ages - so long, in fact, that I don’t recall why I downloaded it in the first place - but then last night I decided to randomly read the first page and damn, was that first paragraph hooking:(Trigger warning: suicide)“One Saturday in the month of August, you leave your home wearing your tennis gear, accompanied by your wife. In the middle of the garden you point out to her th [...]

    Suicide is a brief novel in which the narrator itemizes selected fragmentary details of the life (and death) of a friend who killed himself some twenty years before; these details vary from the particular and anecdotal to the abstract and philosophical. What results is a meandering archeology of suicide itself, both as an individualistic act and as a general phenomenon. The text itself remains incomplete, however, without its necessary epilogue: the author Edouard Levé committed suicide only te [...]


  • Hadrian

    You will write this book review about Suicide.You will want it to be concise. You will want it to cut and draw blood from whoever finds it. You have heard vaguely interesting things about it, but tried desperately to forget them as you opened the pages, avoiding the temptation of the back cover.Although you often enjoyed working in noisy crowded places, here you feel very cold and distant, not from the flashing lights nor the conversation of your neighbors. Your fingers are stiff. You glimpse pa [...]


  • Magdalen

    «You did not fear death. You stepped in its path, but without really desiring it: how can one desire something one doesn't know? You didn't deny life but affirmed your taste for the unknown, betting that if something existed on the other side, it would be better than here.»I feel as if I’ve lost a friend. I am numb.The reader cannot help but view Levé ‘s Suicide as Levé’s Suicide note…Of course this novel should come with a “trigger warning” on the cover. I can’t decide where t [...]


  • FrancoSantos

    “This was what disturbed you the most: that you could, one day, choose to fall.”Intense, so fucking intense. Un libro que trate un tema como el suicidio ya es delicado, pero que el autor se haya quitado la vida pocos días después de entregar el manuscrito de Suicide es poderosamente desolador.Suicide aborda el tema de la muerte desde la vida. Desde esos tristes momentos que dejan su marca como espinas de lo que pudo ser pero no fue, de esas luchas internas que de a poco van ganando terreno [...]


  • knig

    Leve, as the whole world and his goat knows, delivered the manuscript of Suicide to his publishers and committed suicide ten days later, thus ensuring immediate and spectacular (posthumous) literary canonisation.Primarily a photographer, Leve likes a certain formal distance in subject -object interaction, a reserved detachment which works well with his photography and yields mixed results in Suicide.In a series of photo portraits under the thema of pornography, Leve does this:and thisClothed por [...]

    Edouard Leve'in bu kitabı yayıncıya teslim ettikten on gün sonra intihar ettiği düşünülürse, bu kitap da bir "intihar güncesi"ne dönüşüyor. “Ağustos ayında bir Cumartesi günü, üstünde tenis giysileri, yanında karın, evinden çıkıyorsun.

    It seems impossible to discuss Edouard Levés Suicide without discussing Edouard Levés suicide, and indeed I am not sure it was such a smart move to write as a blurb "Edouard Levé delivered the manuscript for his final book, Suicide, just a few days before he took his own life." Or maybe it doesnt matter, those who are interested in this small novel will most likely know about it anyway before finally reading the book. But I could not help myself to go to this few lines over and over again, st [...]


  • Eddie Watkins

    Death was never such a clean reading pleasure.Absolute despair is the unspoken center of this novel. Radiating around it are crisply clinical depictions and descriptions of disconnected experiences haunted by this despair (with suicide as foreknowledge). Despair is an intimate stranger studied with cold obliquity.Total cool never penetrated so deeply.A chill runs through the reader.Suicide has never been so exhilarating; so cold, so paradoxically warming.Suicide as a way to preserve one's clarit [...]


  • Francisco H. González

    La tristeza me persigue pero yo soy más lento, podemos enunciar a modo de pórtico. Leo que Édouard Levé en su novela Autorretrato, en su última páginas hablaba de un amigo suyo que se suicidó volándose la tapa de los sesos a los 25 años. Suicidio va dedicado a este amigo. Al contrario de la mayoría de novelas fúnebres que vienen a ser cartas abiertas, ya sean a hijos, padres, madres o hermanos muertos, con las que los que se quedan explicitan lo jodido que es no tenerlos nunca más a [...]


  • Jim Coughenour

    Oulipo, the movement founded in 1960 by a group of French writers committed to the creation of literature using constrained writing techniques, produced works generally more interesting in conception than in execution – novels composed without the letter "e"; the same trivial scene narrated in multiple styles; etc. Edouard Levé's Suicide takes the experiment to its annihilating limit. A short book composed as a meditation to a friend who killed himself, it instantiates itself as a suicide not [...]

    In one episode in Levé's Suicide, the protagonist buys second-hand shoes and goes to a party wearing them. There he learns, through some not-so-important coincidence, that the previous owner of the shoes had committed suicide. But is second-hand shoes a popular concept in France? Never heard of it, cannot imagine it. **And this complicates things“I do not buy used shoes”Excerpt From: Edouard, Levé. “Autoportrait.” Dalkey Archive Press,

    Here's how I'd do it : Blow my money on a one-way ticket to some scenic Alpine village on a lake, weight my pockets with stones, walk right out into that cool lake until all of this ain't no more, and the last thing I see is mountain, lake, sun, sky, cloud, green and blue light

    "Ölümünün acısına arkanda bıraktıkların tek başlarına katlanacaklar. İntiharın bu bencil yanından hoşlanmıyordun. Ama tartınca, ölümün dinginliği yaşamın acı dolu çalkantılarına üstün geldi."


  • Charles Dee Mitchell

    Three things to know about Edouard Levé’s Suicide:1) Sometime in the 1980’s, a childhood friend of Levé’s, with whom he had lost touch, committed a very carefully planned suicide at the age of twenty-five.2) Twenty years later, Levé wrote the novel Suicide, using a second-person narration to meditate upon the life and death of his late friend.3) Ten days after turning in the manuscript, Levé committed suicide himself.Reading Suicide is a fascinating and uncomfortable experience. In the [...]


  • Aydan Yalçın

    Bu kitap hayatı, ölümü, doğumu ve varlığımızın her bir zerresini sorguluyor. İntihar eden çocukluk arkadaşına yazılan bir mektuptan oluşan İntihar'da, Levé bir insanı "o" noktaya getiren nedenleri anlatıyor. Ve belki biraz da eleştiriyor. Arkadaşına öldüğün için artık "tamsın" derken aynı zamanda o öldüğü için duyduğu acıyı da paylaşıyor. "Yaşamın bir varsayımdı. Yaşlanıp ölenler bir geçmiş yığınıdır. İnsan onları düşününce, oldukları [...]


  • Carolyn

    In a sense, Suicide is to be viewed with a sense of pathos. It is merely the document of a paralyzed self. Levé's writing reveals the discrepancies between the inner and outer worlds of those liable to suicide. It appears as though the anonymous departed protagonist (perhaps our auteur himself) is tormented by his own internalization of thought and feeling. His feelings of extreme discontent seep out through cracks in his behaviour and attitude towards life, yet he continues to bear the mask of [...]


  • Gastón

    El suicidio es disparador de múltiples interpretaciones. Se lo piensa a partir del pasado y se lo describe y condena desde el presente. Eso es lo que hace Édouard Levé en este libro que describe los detalles de una vida que ya no existe. Usando como motor al suicidio de un amigo, Levé justifica el vacío y absurdo que rodea al humano. El tono se mueve entre la imprecación desde el sufrimiento y la exaltación desde el deseo. Propone pensar a la finitud como acercamiento a una verdad. El má [...]


  • Uyuyan Adam / Engin Türkgeldi

    Rahat okunan, iyi çevrilmiş bir kitap (Çev: Orçun Türkay). Çok çarpıcı bir başlangıcı ve konusu olmasına rağmen sayfalar geçtikçe anlatımın ve içeriğin tek düzeliği zaman zaman yıldırdı. Kitap hakkındaki en çarpıcı şey ise yazarın, kitabı editörüne teslim ettikten iki hafta sonra intihar etmiş olması. Bu, tek başına kitabı okumak için bir neden.

    Sublime. Singular. Conclusive.


  • Xandra

    There can’t be many subjects that make one more uncomfortable than suicide. Death is repulsive. Choosing it over its much more popular, highly regarded, imposed-by-default alternative, life, is one of the most sensitive topics. Life has a good reputation, it’s regarded as a gift, and, most importantly, it’s customizable. If you don’t like some of its features, you can always make adjustments. That’s why the desire to die comes with shame, regret and a sense of loss and defeat. You’re [...]


  • Daniel

    This is a very long review, and I am sorry, but I have a lot to say about this book.It’s my opinion that Édouard Levé perfects the pointillist technique he experiments with in Autoportrait in Suicide. I’ll explain my reasoning later.Levé is worth reading for reasons other than this unique experimentation. It is in his ability to create character through this pointillism that he really shines. These facts build people who are very real. It reminds me of advice for lovers I once heard: don [...]


  • Michael Palkowski

    A eulogistic piece of writing written in the second person narrative that weaves together the experiences and life of the writer and the subject of death. Leve writes about himself as much as he writes about his friend. He address dying head on and is comforted by the free will in suicide, the act of living in death and his reflections, strength and passion is sad, subtle and unimposing. He writes more fluidly here than in his other works, but the disconnect is in his choice of subject and in hi [...]


  • Jim

    One of the most gripping first paragraphs I've read in ages:"One Saturday in the month of August, you leave your home wearing your tennis gear, accompanied by your wife. In the middle of the garden you point out to her that you've forgotten your racket in the house. You go back to look for it, but instead of making your way toward the cupboard in the entryway where you normally keep it, you head down into the basement. Your wife doesn't notice this. She stays outisde. The weather is fine. She's [...]


  • Jeremy

    This is an odd, improbable thing. A short novel addressed in the second person to a friend who committed suicide by a man who would commit suicide 10 days after finishing it. It's obviously somewhat impossible to read this book without keeping Leve's own suicide in mind. The austere, almost pointillist style of his book 'Auto-portrait' is expanded here as he ruminates about what it means for a person to end their own life, about the perpetual mystery around it, about how it reshapes, re-orients [...]


  • Regan

    The rating is not a recommendation. As I was reading Suicide, it occurred to me that I would not feel comfortable recommending it to anyone, regardless of how excellent it is, how raw, or how truthful.

    msarki.tumblr/post/5071818I recently acquired this little white book titled SUICIDE, published by The Dalkey Archives, for two reasons. Maybe three. The translator goes by the name of Jan Steyn who seems to be an interesting fellow who would be more inclined to his working hard on helping us English-speaking readers to understand a great piece of literature than in turning over a quick buck. Steyn translated the fantastic Alix’s Journal by Alix Cleo Roubaud and I loved that book very much. Ano [...]
