This book is a chamber piece in four movements, framed by a clever overture and stunning coda and telling the story of a man obsessed with the meaning of an obscure text. Like Umberto Eco's sprawling mysteries, Benabou's slim volume is packed with witty references to various other texts, whether arcane, obvious, or entirely invented. But erudition here does not get in the way of a strong narrative voice. There is no traditional plot line to speak of.

In one of the most thought-provoking and wry books by one of the most intriguing contemporary writers in French literature, readers become party to the dilemma of "challenging" literature in a singularly involving and amusing fashion. Opening a book that has mysteriously appeared amid the clutter of his desk, the narrator finds himself exhorted not to read further, to throw the book away! Instead (but of course) he tries different strategies for approaching the book, none of which work. The narrator's tempestuous, increasingly obsessive relationship with the book he is determined to read, interwoven with the story of a real (but no less enigmatic) love affair, is, in its own challenging way, a charmed and charming, deeply provocative meditation upon reading and writing, and their inevitable discontents. Dump This Book offers a new angle on the work of this original writer and an ironic perspective on the power of reading to produce meaning.
