Sophie Calle's exquisite tribute to her mother, Rachel Monique

"Monique wanted to see the sea one last time," Sophie Calle writes of her mother in Rachel Monique. "On Tuesday, January 31, we went to Cabourg. The last journey." Above this English translation, the same text is debossed in large letters. Across from it, this photograph appears. There has never been a book quite like this one. Embroidered sparkling linen cover, a variety of deluxe papers, spot varnish on reproductions of vintage photographs, excerpts from Calle's mother's diaries, and Calle's own texts and photographs documenting the process of laying her mother to rest add up to much more than the sum of their parts. Described as "a highly personal work of mourning that manages to be universal in its evocation of the emotionally complex mother-daughter relationship," by Mary Kaye Schilling in T Magazine, Rachel Monique is one of two new books that Calle will be signing 2:30-4PM today at 192 Books.
