Originally published in 1924 to immediate and lasting acclaim, Liberty or Love! is the story of Sanglot the Corsair’s pursuit of the siren Louise Lame. Written by one of the most important surrealist writers of all time, Robert Desnos, the novel is filled with virtue and bravura, mystery and the marvellous, adventure and the erotic. Characters appear and vanish according to whim and desire, they walk underwater, they nonchalantly accept astounding coincidences. Desnos’s novel is the perfect embodiment of the Surrealist spirit: joyful, despairing and effortlessly scandalous.
