The Colossal Lie. Collection OU. nr 4. (French version) 1974. Square quarto, 90 pages, numerous plates printed on the right hand pages. Illustrated wrappers. Wrappers lightly soiled + faint fold to top right corner of front wrapper.

- First French edition. One of 500(550) hand numbered copies. Layout by Jean Chopin. Chopin: The more I read "The Colossal Lie", the more I realise how sham the world around us is. This "Colossal Lie" should take its place in the long line of clear­sighted critics who have each independently left their mark on their age: Swift, Jarry, Hasek, Orwell, etc. as through them we can see clearly, amid the relentless logic of the bluff that surrounds us. De Charmoy is extremely lucid; she sees our world lost in hallucinations, besotted with abstractions, red with blood.
There also runs through her work this generous poetic vitality, staccato, with no useless phraseology or hollow constructions. In this de Charmoy belongs to our age, saying what is essential through an essential vitality...'
