About the author

Giorgio de Chirico (1888–1978) was an Italian painter and writer. His early metaphysical paintings were championed and beloved by Apollinaire and Breton and the French Surrealists, and had a profound influence on modern artists and poets. His novel, Hebdomeros (Exact Change), has been called the “the finest work of Surrealist fiction” by the poet John Ashbery.
