Rebellato, Dan. 'Gestes D'utopie: Le Théâtre De David Greig.' edited and translated by Lanteri, Jean-Marc Dramaturgies Britanniques (1980-2000). Écritures Contemporaines. Paris-Caen: Lettres Modernes Minard, 2002. 125-48. Print.

In the early 2000s, I wrote an essay on David Greig which was published in French but not in English. I thought it might be worth putting the original up here so you can read it. It's a pretty comprehensive - to say nothing of long - essay looking at the first decade of his writing, from A Savage Reminiscence (1991) to Casanova (2001). It complements my essay on Suspect Culture from 2003, which was reworked substantially for The Suspect Culture Book.
