At Un aller-retour dans le noir today, my book Le Champion Nu, which I wrote 32 years ago, won the Prix Marianne. Pau is a beautiful city, and the festival is a marvel (amazing to see so many people of all ages who’re serious about books), and I’ve made some new friends.
Speaking of friends… I’m immensely grateful to Mikael Demets, my editor at Editions Tusitala for publishing this book and Le livre de l’homme, and to the great Laurence Viallet, who translated them. Nine bows.
Larry Fondation and I have been inseparable friends for about 25 years now. And, even though he's in Los Angeles, USA, and I'm in Glasgow, Scotland, we were recently spotted together in Paris, France, in L'Ecume des pages bookshop. Fitting, as we met in a bookshop.
