Frederic Beigbeder

September 21

Frédéric Beigbeder (b. 1965) – French novelist, literary critic – Un roman français (2009)

Read the Wikipedia article for Frederic Beigbeder  and visit Beigbeder’s website (French) ‘Le Snob’

Read a review of Beigbeder’s novel Windows on the World

“The position occupied by Beigbeder in France is that of the pop-intellectual, the cultural commentator novelist. Windows on the World is, as you would expect from Beigbeder if you are familiar with him, part novel, part cultural commentary, part manifesto and part cathartic purge.”

Watch Beigbeder read an excerpt from his book (in French)
Un roman français (A French Novel)

Summary of A French Novel: In his most autobiographical book to date, the author of the award-winning ‘Windows on the World’ recounts his stay in police custody, when in January 2008 he was arrested for snorting cocaine outside a Paris nightclub.
