THE WIT OF THE STAIRCASES

The Wit of the Staircase is a hymn to the imaginary. Raul Ruiz made the final touches a few days before his death. Taking a ghost as alter-ego, this mischievous fantasy liberates the reader, and disarms with its unusual poetry.
“You are going to invent a life, a whole life. I was spoilt for choice… I could recount my life as the Emperor of China. Or a Roman legionnaire, a Catalan bandit, goodness knows what! I re-invented my own life, with a slight discrepancy. I couldn’t possibly know I was going to live this life… for real! That I would have to suffer the death I recounted.” Raul Ruiz
This book follows his other written works published with Dis Voir (In Pursuit of Treasure Island, The Book of Disappearances and his two Poetics of Cinema volumes).
