Volume II of the Collected Works of Alfred Jarry. Absolute Love, Days and Nights and Exploits and Opinions of Doctor Faustroll, Pataphysician.

This second volume of the Collected Works presents three early novels:

Days and Nights, a semi-autobiographical novel whose protagonist deserts everyday life by all means available — dream, drugs, hallucination and a strange erotic quest: the pursuit of “The Double".

Exploits and Opinions of Doctor Faustroll, Pataphysician, Jarry’s masterpiece, in which ’Pataphysics, the science of imaginary solutions, is presented and applied.

Absolute Love, the strangest of Jarry’s novels, in which he explores an entirely new dramatic scenario, “the discovery that one’s mother is a virgin".
