L'Abécédaire de Gilles Deleuze, with Claire Parnet (1996)
“A for Animal” It's not men, but animals, who know how to die. Thus, the writer pushes language to the limit of the cry, of the chant, and a writer is responsible for writing "for", in the place of, animals who die, even by doing philosophy.
“B for Boisson” Deleuze refers to the writers Wolfe and Fitzgerald as a "série d’alcoolique" (alcoholic series). He says drinking helped them to perceive that something which is too strong in life.
