and pretty images.

Article (French)
>> Interview (French)
In the urban universe of 40/50's that this new serie of the collection "Un Monde" invests, the disappointing reality is not always looking like the dreams... Dreams of glory, richness, adventures... It is a temptation, then, to endorse a new identity for one night or for a whole existence, even if it means to cheat - a little, a lot, passionately - with the biographical, financial or social contingencies.
On the scene of this theatre where each one holds finally a role, three characters brought together by the chance - Albert, Jenny and their mentor in illusions, Mr Henry - will take a place in the great play of imposture, between lightness and provocation.
HARMATTAN, le vent des fous.
Republication in october 2002 of the "Roman-BD" published by Dargaud in 1997.

What to do when you are a young poor black in New York and a treasure has awaited you for three hundred years in Africa?
Clear lines and dark ideas for this trip with Terry (the American copy of the Felix Mogo of the "Cafe du voyageur" and the "Troisieme the") which wants to make us believe that in the life all finishes well.

After all, if it is only a matter of appearances, the fraud has to be brillant and ambitious - and champagne for everyone!
Inspired at the same time by the jazz, the "Roman Noir" and the sour spirit of the best Hollywood comedies, Christian Cailleaux interprets with talent the circling partition of Les Imposteurs, in an dynamic and elegant style perfectly in the unison with his subject.
All in charming irony, an author not to forget.

(ou presque)
Today, at Parc Montsouris, I saw a man who recalled me many adventures and memories. My life is not to the end yet, but since decades I go on, ridiculous, each day, step by step like a few billion of my contemporaries. I survived between them and many of them will survive me. However, only one walks with me (Or escorts me!) after all these years. This is the man I saw at the Parc Montsouris today...
