Review

Double Game is a wonderful artist's book. Calle's texts are riveting, and they are enriched and amplified by accompanying photos. The photographs also pull us into the game. -- The New York Times Book Review, Julie Martin

…allowed Calle to “take back my ten pages of his [Auster’s] novel [Leviathan]. I obey the book, Maria obeys me.” -- Time Out New York, March 15-22, 2001, Issue No. 28 --Meghan Dailey --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

By Chiang Hai Tat on May 6, 2000
Format: Hardcover
Whether you're an artist, a writer, an art lover, a fan of either Sophie Calle or Paul Auster (or both), or just an observer of life, there is something for you in this beautifully designed and wonderfully written book. From the elegantly hardcover binding to the amusingly devised performance art pieces, you can't find any fault in this book. The first part of the book collects some of Sophie Calle's own performance art pieces, which were adapted into fiction as part of the Paul Auster's novel Leviathan. One of my favourite is her collection of birthday gifts through a span of several years which she kept and displayed in glass cabinets. The second part is titled the Gotham Handbook, which chronicles her life based on some 'instructions' she asked Paul Auster to write for her. This book will make you wonder where is the thin line between fact and fiction, life and art.

Format: Hardcover
This groundbreaking book details performance artist Sophie Calle's reclamation of the fictionalised version of her that appears in Paul Auster's novel Leviathan. A beautifully produced full colour glossy volume that includes annotated pages from Auster's text as well as the results of the Gotham Handbook, Auster's 'prescription' for Sophie's project that included decorating a NYC phone booth with flowers, free cigarettes, Kleenex, Coke, and snacks and then sitting back and watching people's responses. I loved the 'Chromatic Diet' she assigned herself- eating only foods of a single colour on each day of the week. An intriguing and unforgettable collector's item.

This book, not as big as some other books by Sophie Galle, is the best introduction to her works on the market.
