Read full description of the books:
One of the founders of surrealism, Benjamin Péret lived a life resistant to any aesthetic or political compromise. Though he was the writer most admired within the surrealist group itself, very little of his work has been previously translated. This, the first authorized collection, will assemble his finest work—his novel, Death to Pigs and to the Field of Glory, poems, polemical and critical writings, and unclassifiable works like "Natural History" and "The Round-the-World Calendar of Tolerable Inventions."This volume will also include the first detailed biography of Péret to appear in English, based on sources only recently brought to light. Octavio Paz has described Péret's writings as "among the most original and most savage of our era." Breton wrote, "Humor here gushes from its source."
At last, the source is available in English.

Read information about the authorBenjamin Péret (4 July 1899 – 18 September 1959) was a French poet, Parisian Dadaist and a founder and central member of the French Surrealist movement with his avid use of Surrealist automatism.
Benjamin Péret was born in Rezé, France on 4 July 1899. He, as a child, acquired little education due to his dislike of school and he instead attended the Local Art School from 1912. He too, however, resigned soon after in 1913 due to his sheer lack of study and willingness to do so. Afterwards he spent a short period of time in a School of Industrial Design before enlisting in the French army's Cuirassiers during the First World War to avoid being jailed for defacing a local statue with paint. He saw action in the Balkans before being deployed to Salonica, Greece.
