Enclosed please find your manuscript, “Actuel (1970-1974), or the Manifesto of a Counter-Culture in France,” the subject of which doesn’t interest us.
In this regard, we allow ourselves to recall to you the judgments made of this magazine, [found in] extracts from two books that we have published: “Modernist rag . . . magazine of intellectual pollution”; “public garbage dump of recuperation”; which are judgments that we totally agree with.Sincerely yours,
(Published in Editions Champ Libre, Correspondance, Vol. 1, Editions Champ Libre, Paris, 1978. Translated from the French and footnoted by NOT BORED! June 2012.)
