"Max Cafard's profound exercise in what he calls 'anarchography' is an attempt to say the unsayable (ineffable), a meditation in the form of fragments on the fragments left by the Greek philosopher Heraclitus. But Cafard, an obvious pseudonym with many associations (Kafka, blues, jazz, roaches etc.), interprets him in a radically dialectical way, particularly inspired by taoism, Zen, Surrealism, and certain strands of anarchism. Cafard offers a ruthless critique of things as they are on behalf of 'divine justice, ' and claims persuasively that Heraclitus taught that opposition brings concord and at the heart of all things is "anarchic harmony." Cafard champions nothing less than 'the Custom of Chaos' in this brilliant and profound series of original meditations, which not only provides new insights into the meaning of the philosopher's work but touches upon some of the most important and urgent subjects confronting us today. It is further wonderfully illustrated by Michel Varisco's photos of abandoned industrial landscapes in the Louisiana region and the life-affirming beauty of its trees, plants, water and waterways. What we do to nature is illuminated by what nature, within us all, does to us." -- Peter Marshall
