Cover of book titled all except you

Roland Barthes’s consideration of the drawings of New York artist Saul Steinberg— originally published in France in 1983—is one of the last books in Barthes’s oeuvre to be translated into English. all except you continues Barthes’s inquiries into the indiscernible horizon where writing meets drawing, one becoming the other. The result is less a critique than a translation, an attempt to merge author and artist, to see himself and his desire in the work of Steinberg. Joe Milutis’s translation provides a running commentary in the form of translator’s notes, providing, perhaps, the most faithful translation of the Barthesian eros in his write-through of the write-through. Roland Barthes (1915–1980) was the author of Mythologies, Writing Degree Zero, The Pleasure of the Text, and Camera Lucida. Joe Milutis is a writer, media artist, and Associate Professor of Interdisciplinary Arts and the MFA in Creative Writing and Poetics at the University of Washington-Bothell.
