Alfred Jarry (1873-1907) lived fast, died young, and refused to accept objective reality. He was a major influence on later artistic movements such as Dada and Surrealism, and his nihilistic 1896 play, "Ubu Roj," is acknowledged as the turning point in modern drama. In this first English-language biography illustrated by Bill Griffith--Nigey Lennon presents a vivid, stylish, and empathetic portrait of the man behind Jarry's mythoabsurdist persona, as well as a clear, insightful overview of his writing.
