Bibliothèque de los angeles Pléiade qui les contient, elles avaient été éditées à half, los angeles seconde, qui plus est, sous le titre de "Normance", alors que c'est aux épisodes qu'elle raconte que le titre Féerie pour une autre fois avait été plus spécialement destiné.

Céline, tandis qu'il y travaillait, pensait à ce roman comme à un moment Voyage au bout de los angeles nuit, de nature, vingt ans après, à étonner le public autant que le roman de 1932, et ouvrant comme lui des voies nouvelles qu'il pourrait ensuite explorer. Il n'est pas dit que, son œuvre romanesque désormais considérée et appréciée dans sa totalité, Féerie pour une autre fois n'y trouve pas cette position qu'il lui avait assignée. '
