"Guibert is perhaps France's best known author of AIDS narratives. This brief, literary rumination of photography was written in response to Barthes's Camera Lucida. Guibert combines explorations of the artistic process with memoir, revealing his particular experience and vision of the world as he tries to express what he would have caught in photographs he attempted to take but missed through technical mistakes."--Publisher info

Le paradis : roman by Hervé Guibert( Book )

23 editions published between 1992 and 1996 in 5 languages and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book was written six months before Hervé Guibert's death in December 1991 from an Aids-related illness. The narrative follows the adventures of the author and his 'companion', the beautiful, passionate and mysterious Jayne. She is a statuesque blonde, former swimming champion and model, who excels in the pursuit of pleasure. They wander to and from various romantic locations - Martinique, Zurich, Tahiti, Bora Bora, Mali - which all turn out to be insidiously dangerous and disease-ridden behind their picturesque travel-brochure appearances and their expensive, luxurious hotels. As the author's real life comes to the surface of the fictional fantasy, the narrative gradually takes on more sinister tones: Guibert and Jayne acquire the symptoms of a banal, persistent infection while they are in Mali ... Guibert's Aids symptoms develop and he undergoes a terrifying new kind of brain scan at a clinic in Washington DC ... and, finally, Jayne swims out to a jagged coral reef, never to return

Fou de Vincent by Hervé Guibert( Book )

21 editions published between 1989 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"--Fou de Vincent, énonce d'emblée sa règle du jeu : fin 88, un des jeunes amants de Guibert meurt, victime de sa propre folie, entre sexe, alcool et drogue. "Depuis six ans, il envahissait mon journal. Quelques mois après sa mort, je décidai de le retrouver dans ces notes, à l'envers". Que veut dire "à l'envers"? Le dernier fragment, seul daté (1982), laisse croire que c'est bien son journal que nous lisons, par chutes à peine ordonnées (Guibert tient son journal depuis longtemps, avec obstination, à la fois projet d'écriture et de survie). Mais comment le croire, ou plutôt que croire, puisque aussitôt la règle du jeu énoncée, le fragment suivant nous dit : "Qu'est-ce que c'était? Une passion? Un amour? Une obsession érotique. Ou une de mes inventions?" Il reste ainsi à notre indécision à être à la hauteur de cette folie de Vincent que Guibert nous confie. Il faut croire possibles ces excès de tendresse et d'érotisme (en d'autres temps, on aurait dit : de perversion), qui ne deviennent tels, à vrai dire, et là est la vraie réussite, le plus improbable, qu'à cause de l'intense et troublante beauté des phrases mêmes, dans leur simplicité. Mais comment croire qu'un journal, écrit au jour le jour, ait cette extraordinaire qualité d'écriture?
