Hocus Bogus (Pseudo in French) – 1976

Hocus Bogus

“After having signed several hundred times, so much so that the carpet of my room was covered with white sheets with my nickname crawling everywhere, I was seized with an excruciating fear: the signature became more and more firm, more and more itself the same, identical, as it is, more and more fixed. There it was. Someone, an identity, a trap for life, a presence of absence, an infirmity, a deformity, a mutilation, which took possession, which became I. Émile Ajar. I had incarnated.”
