From French Theory, by Francois Cusset (trans. Jeff Fort). The author is discussing the disdain that some French surrealists had for American culture, citing Andre Breton, who supposedly decried America’s “bargain basement pragmatism.” Isn’t that a great phrase? “Bargain basement pragmatism!” So true, so true.
