Translated from the French.

Using the first letters of the keyboard as his guide, Eric Chevillard assembles here an eclectic medley of reflections and autobiographical experiences.

Yet his attempt to subject content to the formal order of a French keyboard is twice undermined: through its translation into English, and by the nature of the texts themselves, which demonstrate insistently the power exercised by disorder over writing.

Chevillard addresses important yet disparate topics: the experience of turning fifty years old, water closets, enemies, returns, and eyes.

Complemented with drawings and engravings by the great French etcher Philippe Favier, QWERTY Invectives is a humorous little cahier that delights and enchants as Chevillard wanders along his keyboard.
