Staff Reviews

Oulipo member Anne Garreta gives herself a rigid homework assignment and along the way upends the boundaries of autofiction. Her musings on all the people she's desired or those who have desired her are moving, funny, erotic, and magical. Her gem on American "highway music" is worth it in itself.

Not One Day begins with a maxim: "Not one day without a woman." What follows is an intimate, erotic, and sometimes bitter recounting of loves and lovers past, breathtakingly written, exploring the interplay between memory, fantasy, and desire.

"For life is too short to submit to reading poorly written books and sleeping with women one does not love."

Anne Garr ta, author of the groundbreaking novel Sphinx (Deep Vellum, 2015), is a member of the renowned Oulipo literary group. Not One Day won the Prix M dicis in 2002, recognizing Garr ta as an author "whose fame does not yet match their talent."
