  1. 1. Hallucinating Foucault

    "Hallucinating Foucault" tells the story of a young scholar's obsession with a reclusive, brilliant writer. The scholar follows the writer's trail across Europe, discovering his past, his lovers, and the horrifying circumstances of his present life. As he becomes more and more entangled in the writer's world, the line between fiction and reality starts to blur. The novel is a meditation on the power of literature, the madness of obsession, and the thin line between genius and insanity.
