The Wrinkle Maker by Marcel Béalu

Here's a link to a classic short story, republished in the current edition of Cafe Irreal:
The Wrinkle Maker ("Le Fabricant de rides") by Marcel Béal

The biography...

Marcel Béalu (1908-1993) was best known for the delicacy with which he explored dreams and the unreal in poetry, prose, and painting. A retiring figure, he ran a bookstore by the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris named Le Pont Traversé after a novel by his friend, critic and editor Jean Paulhan. There he held readings for a small circle of surrealist and fantastical writers; it is said Lacan, among his first customers, purchased Shakespeare's complete works and forgot to pay for them.
