Gilbert Alter-Gilbert

Gilbert Alter-Gilbert is a critic, translator, and literary historian whose recent publications include the grim anthology "Life and Limb" and an English-language edition of Vicente Huidobro's "Manifestos Manifest". An "experimental classicist," Alter-Gilbert is an inveterate practitioner of "fictive history", a genre pioneered by such illustrious forebears as Marcel Schwob and Raymond Roussel.
