•A French-Canadian in New York (Mind the Gap) and A
French-Canadian in London (No Way Out)
§Second and Third parts of the trilogy of autobiographical
books. This time it is the universe of Toronto, New York, London and Brussels that are depicted.
Adventures of a youth in the bars, pubs, clubs, within different relationships
alcohol. The idea is to create the myth of the miserable and poor author in a
handwriting that grips. Emotions, sensitivity, philosophy of life, everything is there, the
author can die at the end of his work. A French-Canadian in New York will be published in September 2004
at TG Publisher in Paris.
Urbains Londoniens(London Urban Elements) & Old Street
§The meaning of London urban life
considered in parallel of the life in the countryside in France, especially
along the Canal du
Midi. The book also tells the adventures of the author while travelling
throughout Europe because of his conferences: Barcelona, Paris, Amsterdam, Cannes, Rome and
Geneva. Is there a meaning to this existence and the life we have built as for ourselves as a
society? These two books are now called A French-Canadian in Europe and will eventually be published at TG
§Diaries are always refused by publishers
who never read them anyway unless you are a political figure or a celebrity. Too many people writes a diary and feels
it is good enough to be published, of course it is not and would never sell.
trick for me was to live a life so interesting that the diary would become as
good as a novel. I also needed to write it with a style sufficiently interesting
and funny that publishers would want to publish it. It was not easy and many sacrifices had to be done in order for
this to come true. I abandoned my studies in Ottawa (Law) and Paris
moved to Europe, I made huge life decisions like moving to New York in split
seconds and never regretted it. You are either someone who will reach its goals
and will sacrifice everything for them, or you are not and might succeed at being a good lawyer without ever making
your dreams come true. I want to die and be proud of my achievements, not sad that I have not fulfill my dreams. So
I am continuing my life as a crazy man and I am writing it all down for posterity. Of course, writing a diary is
also therapeutic, it is a way to understand myself and to help me to make decisions about my future.
