Le Monde Profiles Me

Here. The interview dates from last February, but Le Monde waited for a slow news week to run it, since I'm less newsworthy than Donald Trump, Kanye West, and the other Amerloques who appear more often in its pages. The photographer took 200 photos but managed only to capture my scowl.

Any way to read this if one is not a Le Monde subscriber?

Art Goldhammer said...

Dunno.

Art - I think the photo more than adequately captures your jaundiced view of the current French political scene. Good article, even if you are not totally enamored of the pic.

Progressive France not dead. Just a sleeping beauty.

Don't worry about the choice of the picture or the timing: many a reader like me enjoyed the piece, was impressed by your achievements... and learned about Cécile Alduy or Antoine Lilti. Thanks!

Votre trogne ?
200 photos ? then we will see you again

Paul P. said...

If i may add, how come you comment on french politics and not on your knowledge : translations,authors, reception of your works in your country, etc.
Why don't you share what you really know best ? That would be precious and interesting.

I find your messages as flat and déjà-vus as the ones written by amateur french people on their blogs. It sure makes you sound as a french "habitué du Café du commerce"

It is a sort of a grumpy looking photo but it is accompanying a very flattering and well deserved profile in Le Monde.

I am sorry but the article is neither flattering nor a critic: it's very neutral, informative and quite boring in fact!!!! It's not quoting you much, it's more a historical sum up of what you did in your connection to France.

@ Paul P. : I strongly suggest reading "Shooting War" (in English only, so far :-) ).
