This translation of Raymond Roussel's classic work is a pleasure to read, while remaining quite faithful to the original. Locus Solus is not a story in any conventional sense, but consists of a series of surreal vignettes (Roussel was an inspiration to the Surrealists) set in the villa of the fabulously rich and brilliant Master Canterel. Its panoply of mad scientific devices seems like hallucinatory transformations of the machines imagined by Jules Verne.

Raymond Roussel (French pronunciation: ; January 20, 1877 – July 14, 1933) was a French poet, novelist, playwright, musician, and chess enthusiast. Through his novels, poems, and plays he exerted a profound influence on certain groups within 20th century French literature, including the Surrealists, Oulipo, and the authors of the nouveau roman.

Locus Solus-la propriété se nomme ainsi-est une calme retraite où Canterel aime poursuivre en toute tranquillité d'esprit ses multiples et féconds travaux.

By (author) Raymond Roussel, Translated by Marcelo Cohen Levis Chokler.

1. That Thursday in early April my learned friend Martial Canterel had invited me, along with several other close friends of his, to visit the huge park surrounding his beautiful villa at Montmorency. Locus Solus, as the property is called, is a quiet retreat where Canterel enjoys the pursuit of his various fertile labors with a perfectly tranquil mind. Canterel spends almost the entire year at Locus Solus, surrounded by disciples full of passionate admiration for his continual discoveries, who lend their enthusiastic support to the completion of his work.
