Intertextuality, Language, and the Ludic in the Novels of Jean-Philippe Toussaint
Thank you Yves de la Quérière for teaching me so much and believing in me. This book would have never happened without you. Your brilliance and your sense of humor sustained and inspired me in graduate school, and made me love literature more than I thought possible. Thank you as well to Warren Motte and Alain-Philippe Durand for taking the time to read the book in your very spare time. I hope you understand how grateful I am for that. Thank you Jean-Philippe Toussaint for permission to use your beautiful photograph “La bibliothèque de Canton.” Your generosity of spirit is much appreciated. A huge thank you to my fabulous colleagues and friends Sophie Rigolot Adamson and Olivia Jones Choplin for their on-going support of this project. Vous êtes des trésors. Thank you to my parents Carroll Hill Glasco, Jr. and Laurel Bulger Glasco for always encouraging me no matter what I wanted to do in life. Many parents push pragmatism over passion on their kids, and you never imposed this mentality on me. Having the emotional space and freedom to pursue your passions is just as important, if not moreso, as the financial means and innate abilities, and this gift is not lost on me. Finally, thank you Ed, Quinn, and Sasha for your patience. Indeed, all your patience.← vii | viii →
