Prouvost draws on the strange, daily, deictic assault of contemporary language in the same way, savouring the unasked-for intimacy of a faux-personal spam message or a threatening chain letter. These ridiculous demands nonetheless inflict tiny fractures on our sense of separateness and self- containment. We cannot rid ourselves of the residual hope that these carpet-bombing come-ons are really for us. But for Prouvost’s confiding personas, the desire for such a sense of connection constantly spills over… spirals off into conjecture and towards the further reaches of empathy, pathological projection.
