History of the writer who has arrived to the coast to finish the novel about the French vice consul in Calcutta. He faces a problem – very much tries to find adequate words for the history everywhere. Convinced as he has said that these words really somewhere exist, he writes, erases offers, tears pages. The history which he writes is developed in the outside world which seems parallel to what he invents though it isn’t clear what of them reflects what.
