Summary: "Cool, postmodern," in the words of Kevin Hart. Armand's first published volume of prose explores by means of a rigorous experimentation the relations between "psycho-geography" and "geo-psychology"; between the stability and instability of place, personality and perception. In the verbal setting of The Garden (with its echoes of Bosch, Eden, the classical "forbidden garden" or the Perfumed Garden of Arabian literatu...re), figures mesh in a half-light of memory and desire. The text moves fluidly between the exotic and the banal, the archetypally general and the minutely specific. Sometimes compared to the work of Claude Simon and Alain Robbe-Grillet, Armand's "unpunctuated" prose is less about the construction of imagistic or verbal ambiguity, than it is a way of writing with the ambiguities that exist already in the world, by virtue of the fact that the world is something "experienced." It is for this reason that Armand's language always remains "concrete," the language "tangible" it is not about experiences but the experience itself.
