    A French Novel

    Frederic Beigbeder was arrested during the night of the 28th of January 2008 for snorting cocaine off the bonnet of a car in the super-chic 8th arrondissement of Paris, together with some fellow clubbers. Since then his nickname in France has been Truman Capot, as 'capot' means 'car bonnet' in French. Because his actions were seen as a provocation against the police establishment, and because FB was so well-known, he was kept in custody for two awful nights - much longer than is usual.
    This autobiographical text is presented as a sincere attempt to recollect past events and strengthen the fragile foundations of an individual's life at the moment of their being weakened. This gives a personal and spiritual touch to the moving confessions of a typical forty-year-old lost French man.
