"Impressions of Africa" by Raymond Roussel

Very, very excited to see a new translation of Raymond Roussel's masterpiece "Impressions of Africa."  Mark Polizzotti is doing the translating and the great press Dalkey Archive is publishing it.  Coming out June 24th, 2011

And this is the translation that is out now, and I believe it was done in 1966. Oneworld Classics just re-release this great book and you should get it too.  I am firm believer that you can't get enough translations of a great classic  - and "Impressions of Africa" is a classic in that 'classic' sense.
