"In the original French edition of this book, Pierre Cabanne wrote, shortly before Duchamp's death: 'These interviews with Marcel Duchamp took place in his studio at Neuilly [near Paris], where he and his wife live during the six months they spend in France each year. It is the first time that the most fascinating and the most disconcerting inventory in contemporary art has agreed to talk and explain, so profoundly and at length, his actions, his reactions, his feelings, and the choices he makes." -- from book's introduction by Robert Motherwell. Preface by Salvador Dali and An Appreciation by Jasper Johns. Chronology, bibliography and index.
