Tales by Stéphane d'Arc
YOUR EYES WILL BE RIVETED TO THE PAGES OF THIS BOOK...
It is our pleasure to present Stéphane d'Arc's latest work.
Although d'Arc has been writing for quite some time – he started putting pen to paper at page eight – he has never been published.
17.3-Inch is d'Arc's seventh book. It's the first one, he says, that hasn't found its way into the dumpster!
Born in 1966, this former French teacher with a background in Lacanian psychoanalysis, is now an expert in old books. He has immersed himself in the world of fairy tales, with a particular fondness for those written by Tieck and the Brothers Grimm.
D'Arc weaves technology through seven daring and modern tales in attempt to make the genre fresh and contemporary. They are at once sombre, beautiful and symbolic; captivating the reader until the very end. The ambiance is reminiscent of the filmmaker David Lynch, whose use of fantastical imagery and sound creates a dreamscape that disturbs and mystifies viewers.
In eponymous tale, d'Arc stages a coup d'état on his publisher, deftly mixing what is real and what is not. The final story binds the other six tales together, enriching the whole book and transforming it from a series of disconnected stories to a richer, singularly more immersive experience.
17.3-Inch is an extraordinary book that has already become a classic.
