For me, autobiographical work always carries a risk that the writer chose an easy way. Maurice Blanchot, the very same person who wrote introduction to "Nights as Day, Days as Night, once stated that Paul Valery is by no means a hero, since he found it good to talk and write about everything and this doesn't belong to the extreme of literature in this sense, most journals but also some novels - see Knausgard's fiction - don't. But when an autobiographical writing is done properly and when it's For me, autobiographical work always carries a risk that the writer chose an easy way.
But when an autobiographical writing is done properly and when it's obvious that it was a hard work and big sacrifice to uncover deeper layers of conciousness and subconciousness, well, than it can really achieve greatness. And Michel Leiris was always - not only in this book - one of the writers to do it just right. Oct 26, Tosh rated it it was amazing.

And here we have his dream diary - which is quite amazing. In maintaining a record of dream experiences for almost forty years, Leiris created a poetic engagement with dreaming that is surprisingly engaging and illuminating. If his initial inspiration came from his connections with the French surrealists, his training as an ethnographer influenced his approach to collecting his own dreams.

Dream House Days
Lauren is only nine years old, but has sadly recently been diagnosed with cancer, and undergone numerous gruelling treatments over the past year. For her Dream Day, Lauren and her family were driven in a Lamborghini to an airport on the North Shore, where they got to experience a scenic helicopter flight around Auckland! After the flight, they were taken to the MAGS working farm, where they fed the animals and even had a ride in an all-terrain vehicle.
Next stop was a yummy picnic sushi lunch in Albany and then the family were treated to a nails and make-up pamper session.
Silver Fern Michaela Sokolich had made a special video to give to give to Lauren, along with a goodie bag. The final stop of the day was to Yolanda and Wolfe Donut shop, where they got to fill and decorate their own donuts — as well as eating some with a hot drink! Gardenia and her family were picked up on their Dream Day and first taken to the Mt Albert Grammar School MAGS working farm, where they were able to watch cows being milked, calves and pigs being fed — and they even got to feed a lamb!
They then headed off to Takapuna for a wee wander along the beautiful beach, followed by a scrummy shared lunch at Pita Pit with the crew from One50 Group.
World Dream Day
Next it was off to Snowplanet, where Gardenia had her first ever experience with snow! She was then picked up in a Lamborghini and taken to Manly beach for a ride in a Sealegs boat — this was the first time on the water for Gardenia. After an exhausting but fun day, the tired family were taken back home — Gardenia was also thrilled with her gift of a Sony PlayStation.
Ryan and Kieran sadly lost their Dad to cancer a very short time ago. We picked them up on Sunday in some awesome cars Lamborghini, Mustang and Mercedes , and took them to the epic team at Heletranz. After a Heli flight around the sky tower, we took them to our office, played some pool and a bit of basketball with some of the team, then out for some lunch before dropping them home. Whether they are going out with mates to play ball, going to the beach, basically anything that a couple of worthy young lads like Ryan and Kieran would enjoy.
We can assure you that this will be a very rewarding thing for everyone.
