—Who has really read Proust

—Besides a few Proustians

—We are no Proustians

—Despite not being anti-Proustian...

Speak / Stop comprises two interrelated texts: a chorus of unidentified voices followed by a work of literary criticism that only Noémi Lefebvre could write—a semiotic fever dream that weighs meaning and meaning-making against idea and ideology.

Abstracted, irreverent, and full of biting satire, Lefebvre picks apart hypocrisies in our lives and the language of our lives, skewering our literary pieties before delving headfirst into the paradox of self-criticism. Working against conventional notions of genre and form, Speak / Stop is “a madhouse of earthworm sentences” interrogating concerns of class and taste, ease, and inclusion/exclusion that are the foundations of Lefebvre’s work.

—We like Proust a lot, but do we know him?

—We enjoy literature

—And enjoy enjoying it

—Indeed we aspire to a degree of culture

—Which we also enjoy

—For we do have some
