*Renzo BIANCHINI (1922-2000). 21 L.A.S. (4 typed with autograph additions), Ponsampère, Preignan or Barran (Gers) 1967-1990, to Paul Chambrillon; 35 pages in-4 or in-8, 10 envelopes.
Rich correspondence to his friend Paul Chambrillon (1924-2000). These letters, full of frankness and authenticity, reflect the daily life of the author, voluntarily isolated from Paris, as well as his difficulties in writing and his quarrels with publishers (Balland, Denoël, Gallimard). Hailed by the critics in 1971 for his first novel, Les Pue-la-mort, Bianchini, who was rechristened Céline, published the sequel Le Carnaval des agoniques (1974) and Allegretto pour une fosse (1976). Afterwards, he struggles to regain the favor of publishers. On November 27, 1970, he greeted Mishima's suicide: "A breath of fresh air on the cesspool: this Yuko Mishima! Are there still men? Suppôt du Mauvais, this samurai, inevitably a Nazi ... tcetéra "... He expressed his admiration for Céline: " the pastiche, I pushed him to the point of marrying a dancer [...] and even to jump hunger and thirst in Africa (me for good, Louis only in Le Voyage). Maybe I would not be so keen on medicine, but just a minute, not in the Destouches way, damn it, to grease myself, a specialist in crooked farts, twenty stiff guys consult her [...] Celine's runt, not who wants to! "... Etc. We enclose: a typing note by Paul Chambrillon on Renzo
Bianchini; and an l.a.s. by Jacques Aboucaya at Chambrillon announcing Bianchini's death (August 2, 2000).
