Premier bilan après l’apocalypse (My 100 Favourite Books)
The apocalypse – could this be the digital age then, or, as in Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, the temperature at which paper burns? Frédéric Beigbeder rescues from the fire one hundred works, which he wishes to keep in the 21st century. From number one hundred to one, here is a very personal selection, joyful, unexpected, sometimes classical (André Gide, Fitzgerald, Salinger and other greats), often surprising (Bret Easton Ellis, Régis Jauffret).
It is rare to establish the panorama of literature in the making. With this text we discover the bookish Beigbeder, as well as an autobiography in fragments, a self-portrait of the author as a reader.
