    1. Okay, picture a nonspecific animal that is part insect, part bird, part lizard, part pachydern, and you have the Palafox. The book by Eric Chevillard is something of a bagatelle, and probably not for animal lovers. The first half of Palafox is mostly taken up by a chase when the beast gets loose. In the second half, the creature's human caregivers try to figure out what to do with it: put it in the circus, cook it, kill it whatever. It's rather difficult to sympathize with the Palafox, because [...]

    2. Amusant au début, mais ennuyeux après cinquante pages car le procédé qui consiste à prendre les expressions au pied de la lettre, même s'il produit souvent du comique, s'use très vite J'ai abandonné la lecture.

    3. Chevillard makes the impossible happen every second sentence. With dazzling wit and a staggering sense of the grotesque Palafox narrates, belabours, teases, and tricks along the story of a protean creature and the family who attempts to find, take care of, profit from, and finally kill, it. Its name is Palafox, but that seems the only sure thing about it. Perhaps most strikingly, however, is the sense that none of what goes on is in the least way surreal, banal, or dreamlike: everything is prese [...]

    4. It's exceptionally hard to describe Palafox in any way that does justice to the book, or gives a true sense of the experience reading it. In a nutshell—better, in this case: in an eggshell—it's about a strange creature appearing on a family's breakfast table and taking over their lives and their story. But the plot's not the point here. The animal, Palafox, sometimes seems like a bird and at others a jellyfish and still others a dragon or dog. Sometimes he's huge and sometimes he's tiny, gro [...]

    5. I am currently unable to say much about this book. Few texts succeed in really transporting you to another dimension (?)/ plane (?)/ place (?). Until I can better reconcile the dimension / plane / place of this novel with the one I inhabit I will say no more. Except to say that if you like Kafka, Borges and Cortazar, you'll probably dig this novel (?). I am digging it.

    6. An unlikely and almost simple farce, breathless, overfed on indulgences, and spun out of thin air. Written so tight that it can barely be read more than a paragraph at a time. And the typesetting, paper stock, and overall design? Quiet, quiet, quiet, and proper. A cool blue wrapper shoring up a gooey rainbow of clashing ideas.

    7. this is perhaps my favorite book. it reads like the best kind of fever dream. while i read it i was eating wasabi peas and pet-sitting in this weird, damp house that was mostly packed up into boxes.
