I know (je sais) : Translated from the French by the author with Sixteen Rivers poet Lynne Knight

“No need for an expert to tell us that we don’t know much about the world, ourselves, or others. All the same, there are those—biologists, astrophysicists, writers—who don’t give up hope of knowing more. That’s the case with the author of I Know (Je sais). His method? That of the scientist, and similar to that of the poet and philosopher: an intense lying-in-wait that puts whatever comes into view under scrutiny, with a preference for the ordinary, the minuscule, the incidental. A method that confirms this happy truth: under each close observation lie a thousand new enigmas. Following in the footsteps of Joe Brainard and Georges Perec, but focusing more on the reality at hand, Ito Naga offers an inventory of the given that is at once diverting, unexpected, and, inevitably, provisional—an inventory that presents reality for what it is: a universe infinitely expanding.”                   —Jean-Pierre Siméon, editor, Cheyne éditeur and author of Traité des sentiments contraries

Je sais que, ce soir, j’avais de la répartie et que j’étais en forme pour me friter avec quelqu’un, mais je n’ai trouvé personne. Dommage !

Je sais qu’au lieu de dire « Votre chien aboie la nuit et m’empêche de dormir », il a commencé par « Ce serait trop bête de se disputer à propos d’un chien ».

Je sais qu’ils ne se sont pas disputés.

Né en 1957, Ito Naga est astrophysicien. Il a travaillé à la NASA et à l’Agence spatiale européenne. Il a publié son premier livre, Je sais, chez Cheyne éditeur en 2006 (sixième édition en 2011), traduit au Brésil.
