Emmanuel Carrère: Class Trip & The Mustache (Picador) and The Adversary: A True Story of Monstrous Deception (Picador)
In this episode of our ongoing series, the American Bookworm leaves philosophy and politics and makes his way to his true loves: poetry and fiction. The poet Pierre Alféri is secretly the son of the philosopher Jacques Derrida. The novelist Emmanuel Carrère thinks he may have given up fiction. What is it with these Frenchmen?
Note: More installments of an American Bookworm in Paris will air over the next few months.
