    1. This is a wonderful collection of Rene Magritte's writings that I am so glad to have access to.It contains interviews, and letters, and some stuff previously unpublished (which is just fantastic in itself) and all sorts of other articles, or poems, or manifestos. It is well organized and formatted so that each individual piece of writing has its own space to breathe. And some snippets are less than half a page long which makes it super fun to flip through and just read whatever catches your eye. [...]

    2. This review originally published in Looking For a Good Book. Rated 4.5 of 5Like most people, I suspect, I am familiar with René Magritte from his remarkable, surrealist paintings, but have no clue as to his writing prowess.

But Magritte is not a writer in the sense of producing novels or even short stories in the tradit [...]

Famous for playing with words and image, millions of people know his iconic painting of a pipe with the words beneath it, Ceci n’est pas une pipe (“this is not a pipe“) — point being the image [...]

    4. I received a digital copy of this book from net galley in exchange for an honest review. I was looking forward to reading the selected writings of René Magritte, as I am very familiar with his artwork, but not as much with his writings. This was a great way to be introduced. There were a variety in the selection. From interviews he gave to contributions to written collections and even small wtitings a few sentences long. I'm glad I was able to read this!I would recommend it to people interested [...]
