Une famille à Bruxelles

by Chantal Akerman


Paris: L‘Arche, 1998. First edition. 12mo large (19x11cm), printed card wrappers. 87pp. Text in French. Mild creasing to front cover with tiny stain on rear cover. Contents clean and unmarked. Very good.


An exploration about grief, memory, and the emptiness of words. Inspired by the death of her father, the book captures the essence of Akerman‘s work. Her particular tone, her use of repetition, and her unique way of bringing out emotion by circling around them.
