Back in April, This Space drew our attention to The Cahiers Series from Sylph Editions. Steve now has details of the fifth book which is due out next month. Proust, Blanchot and a Woman in Red looks wonderful:

The cahier comprises three linked pieces by the translator and short story writer, Lydia Davis. First is A Proust Alphabet, which gives an account of several words and issues of particular interest, encountered during the author’s recent translating of Marcel Proust's Swann's Way. There follows a short article on the French thinker and novelist Maurice Blanchot, entitled The Problem in Summarising Blanchot. Finally comes a series of dreams and dreamlike moments, recounted in Swimming in Egypt: Dreams while Awake and Asleep. The cahier is accompanied by photographs by Ornan Rotem.
