I received your book in December. I responded to you then, at the address in Rome that you gave me, by enclosing with my letter two of my most recent books, which perhaps will confirm several of your hypotheses. The package was soon after returned to me, with a note declaring that you were "unknown at this address." And I have since then ascertained that the disorder of the Italian postal service still seems to be what I experienced in the preceding generation. We will now see if I have a better chance by using your publisher's address.
Four months ago, I said to you that I greatly appreciated how well-informed your book is, as well as the excellent level of theory in it. Your objectivity makes a pleasant contrast with the extravagant and calculated incomprehension of my contemporaries. I even find that you have perhaps been a little too indulgent where I am concerned.
If I can clarify some points in the follow-up to your research into Hegelian-Marxism, write to me (starting in May) at this address: Guy Debord, Champot. It is a spot from which the mail always follows me, wherever I might be.Quite cordially,
 The Decline and Fall of the Spectacular Market Economy and "Cette mauvaise reputation."
 Translator's note: Anselm Jappe, Debord, Edizioni Tracce (1991); translated into French in 1999; and eventually translated into English by Donald Nicholson-Smith (1999).
