Description: The long-awaited first biography of one of the 20th-century's greatest revolutionaries

Guy Debord is the first comprehensive biography of one of the finest, but most overlooked, writers in the French language. Beginning with his participation in the student riots and occupation of the Sorbonne in May 1968, Debord's art and activism reflected the tumultuous events of contemporary French history. Whether his medium was poetry, film, or journalism, Debord forever challenged convention and custom alike. And when his philosophy of Situationism was later adopted by Malcolm McLaren and the Sex Pistols, Debord's ideas reached his widest following ever.

Drawing on extensive documentation, previously untranslated correspondence, interviews, tracts, and book excerpts, Guy Debord provides the reader with an abundance of material on a rare historical figure who refused all interviews and "wrote much less than most people who write but drank much more than most people who drink".

Discussed by Greil Marcus in the popular Lipstick Traces, Debord's life and art have never been more fully explored in his historical and political context than in this book. Debord's radical classic Society of the Spectacle inspired a generation of revolt and rightfully earned him notoriety as one of the most profound and forceful revolutionaries of modern times.
