The conductor and other tales by Jean Ferry( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in French in 1950 in a limited edition of 100 copies, then republished in 1953 (and enthusiastically praised by André Breton), The Conductor and Other Tales is Jean Ferry's only published book of fiction. It is a collection of short prose narratives that offer a blend of pataphysical humor and surreal nightmare: secret societies so secret that one cannot know if one is a member or not, music-hall acts that walk a tightrope from humor to horror, childhood memories of a man never born, and correspondence from countries that are more states of mind than geographical locales. Lying somewhere between Kafka's parables and the prose poems of Henri Michaux, Ferry's tales read like pages from the journal of a stranger in a familiar land. Though extracts have appeared regularly in Surrealist anthologies over the decades, The Conductor has never been fully translated into English until now. This edition includes four stories not included in the original French edition and is illustrated throughout with collages by Claude Ballaré

Trenes que circulan sin descanso durante años, sociedades tan secretas que se ocultan a sus propios miembros, números de music-hall a caballo entre lo pavoroso y lo grotesco, autores nonatos que recuerdan su infancia, marineros enajenados, robinsones abúlicos, alpinistas astrales, estudios cartográficos de la conducta, crónicas de viajes irrealizables, apologías del cansancio o el sueño, antropologías descabelladas: salvo la realidad impuesta por el sinsentido común, todo cabe en estos cuentos rebosantes de humor absurdo y pesadillas surrealistas que presentamos traducidos por primera vez al castellano. Emparentados con la fábula kafkiana y las ficciones borgianas que despuntaban en otras latitudes, los relatos de Ferry nos sumergen en un universo donde lo insensato resulta verosímil y lo racional deriva de premisas inconcebibles
