    This is a very accessible introduction to the thought of Bataille As Bataille was a writer writing against systems Hegarty does a nice job of presenting the interconnections of Bataille's work while tending with the paradoxes of such a position; this in addition to pointing out the further paradoxes and contradictions of Bataille's thought Having not read any Bataille before having read this book I do not have the data to determine the appropriateness of Hegarty's interpretation but he is fair in pointing to the strengths and weaknessesblind spots of Bataille's work There were extensive citations as one would expect in such a book and many uotes from Bataille's many works fiction and nonfiction illustrating the author's interpretationFinally the book is uite short 160 pp providing a concise overview for those who want an introduction to Bataille's thought and his influence on later writers such as Kristeva Derrida Foucault and Baudrillard
