When will my order arrive?

Guy Debord's silver-tongue-in-cheek autobiography mixes precision and pastiche in a whirlwind account of philosophy, exploit, and inebriation. From the stark professions of Volume I to the illustrated sequences of Volume 2, "Panegyric" confronts us with a figure who strategically, demonically tried to wrest life from the disabling modern 'spectacle.'
