"Roland Barthes introduces us to this remarkable book: a “corrected banality.” I can imagine no better spokesperson than the one who announced the death of the author, for As We Know is truly a work of “destroyed origin,” in which “all identity is lost”... And yet, we read these confessional fragments with as much eagerness as we bring to the secrets of our best friend, or the stars, or our selves."
