Conversations d'un enfant du siècle (Conversations of a Child of the Century)
Over many a pleasant meal in the hub of Parisian life, Frédéric Beigbeder has met countless famous authors and prolific thinkers of our time. And with Beigbeder’s talent for conversation, they have all shared funny, witty thoughts about life.
Among these dining companions are: Antonio Tabucchi, Umberto Eco, Chuck Palahniuk, Catherine Millet, Jay McInerney, Françoise Sagan, Tom Wolfe, Charles Bukowski, Michel Houellebecq, Jean d’Ormesson, Bernard-Henri Lévy, Bret Easton Ellis, Francis Scott Fitzgerald and James Salter - to name but a few.
Combining their knowledge and his award-winning writing, Beigbeder invites the reader to be privy to these shared conversations, as he brings them all together in his latest title, Conversations of a Child of the Century. And for a while, the reader is welcomed into the conversation as warmly as if he were seated at the same table with them.
