I renounce all my early books and writings — including Hölderlin and Blanchot on Self-Sacrifice (2004), Years of Rage (2005), and the first and second editions of Watch Out (2006; 2008).
I no longer endorse any of these works. They no longer represent me as an artist, as a scholar, or as a human being.
Table 41 (2019) and the final version of Watch Out (2022) are the only books that I take responsibility for. I endorse Table 41, Watch Out: The Final Version, and my more recent literary-critical writings — that is all.
