This is a book every person should have on their shelf for those times when nothing seems to matter or all the important things have lost their importance. Pluche is an artist who realizes he has hit one of those non-creative spells that happen to us all. For him, it means he is not producing his livelihood, paintings. He recognizes the symptoms and knows there's nothing to do but wait it out and see what happens on the other side. What happens in the meantime is that he emerges from his passion and has a spell of enjoying other parts of life and the people in it. His spirit is such that he throws himself into whatever his fate brings along. What happens when the dry spell ends and the paint and canvas beckon him again? His hiatus into the world of friends and family and everyday adventure serve him well until next time. Translated by Robin Chancellor. Dutourd is an acquired taste, partly because he is unclassifiable: artist? novelist? social critic? However his books are always very, very interesting, Bookseller Inventory # 20081118103913
