Dear Georges Bataille,
One hundred and twenty four years ago, on this day, Georges Bataille was ripped out of continuity and thrown into discontinuous existence, that is to say, Georges Bataille was born. Happy birthday Bataille! Thank you for all the gifts you have given to me, I hope that this book can be a gift to you. But, of course I could never repay you! So, this book is to be a history of our friendship.
Thank you for all you have given me,
