  • Publication type: Article from a collective work

  • Abstract: Much like his relationship with literature as a whole, Éric Chevillard’s connection with the short story is ambivalent. Two registers coexist: the subversion of the genre on the one hand, notably by means of parody and humour, and a register of connivance on the other: a desire, shared by both Chevillard and the short story, to be positioned to one side of a realist rendering of the world. In the work of Chevillard, however, a commitment to the zany is a substitute for the fairy-tale recreations of the short story.
