from Guy Debord

To Michel Bounan
22 December 1990
Dear Michel:

Thank you for the correspondence with the stupid publishers[1] and especially for the disk by Florencie,[2] which is so moving: I had never heard him sing "La Place Maubert."

Here are several documents from 1958.[3] The Moineau-Bistro was on rue Guenegaud after the first [one], at 22 rue du Four, around 1950-1955. La Manouche was very briefly at the rue Mazarine in 1957, and the Mont-Blanc was on the rue de la Huchette.

We were charmed to meet you, as with your book. We must see each other in January.
