Here is a story of self-discovery, of entering adulthood and of freeing oneself. The tone is sarcastic, lucid, cruel yet realistic. On a background of R&B and funky electronic music, Nicolas argues gives us an impressive and subtle account of relations between the sexes and of examining the choices one has made in the past.

About the Author:

Nicolas Fargues was born in 1972. He spent his childhood in Cameroon then Lebanon and Corsica, and studied at the Sorbonne where he completed a thesis on the Egyptian writer Georges Henein. He directed the Alliance Francaise of Diego-Suarez in Madagascar for two years before returning to France. He now lives and works in Paris.

Review:

"A man, two women, talent, and a magnificient love story." - Le Figaro

"This magnificient novel is a lot more than a novel." - Philippe Sollers, Le Nouvel Observateur

"Should the ladies wish to know what thoughts run through the mind of a contemporary man, they need only open this little guide of uncertainty and furtive delights." - Madame Figaro

"This self-examination has finesse, relevance and courage in abundance." - Frederic Beigbeder, Technikart

"With I was behind you Nicolas Fargues has delivered a novel of great maturity. And this is due as much to his mastery of writing as to the treatment of his subject." - Le Monde
