Mario Dondero’s nouveau roman pictures
June 25, 2012 § Leave a comment
A great video has recently popped up on YouTube courtesy of FranceInter, which has Mario Dondero talking about his famous, definitive pictures of the nouveaux romancers, although the “the” there is never quite certain (cf. Sam Beckett, front and centre). Why no Butor in the major shot? Why no Duras anywhere? Did it help form the public perception of the group, who was in and who was out? Dondero tries to answer as best he can. A real treasure.
