Les Panoplies (Double-jeu, livre III) : La garde-robe, Le Strip-tease.

In the novel Leviathan, mixing reality and fiction, Paul Auster used episodes from the life of Sophie Calle to create his character Maria. It was a game between the American author and the French photographer and writer. This book is about carrying on the game in her way.

This little pink book contains two remarkable episodes: "la garde-robe" and "strip-tease". The first one is about this woman meeting a bad speaker and decides to send him, anonymously, every Christmas, a garment of her liking. A tie, socks, a vest, a shirt, up to a pair of Christmas tree-patterned briefs. A dressing that is a subtle and highly suggestive undress. The striptease, the second episode of The Panoplies is that of the narrator, wearing a blonde wig, on the stage of a funfair in Pigalle. Black and white photographs follow the striptease, gesture after gesture.
