Cultural Writing. Translated and with an introduction by Robert Greene. In 1984, French film producer Gerard Lebovici was found dead in his car, the victim of an apparent assassination. An immediate media frenzy ensued, with much of it surrounding Lebovici's close friendship with Guy Debord, one of the founders of the Situationist International, and a highly controversial public figure. In this book, Debord offers his in-depth analysis on the still unsolved crime, as well as a scathing critique of the mass news media. "A...nice touch is where he mentions that he actually has no higher opinion of the consumers of the media that he does of the disseminators of it"-Richard Hell. It is "a fascinating document...passionate Dubord, sometimes self-aggrandizing, sometimes reflective, and always illuminating"-Sadie Plant.
