Author Role



"Pierre Desproges was a French humorist, whose successful career took off in the late 70s and ended abruptly with his death from cancer in 1988 (he was 48). Cynical about life, his favorite themes involved the holocaust, racism, religion, death, small-town France, chauvinism, all treated in a quite light-hearted fashion. A stand-up comedian, radio host and fake TV journalist, Desproges would write pieces celebrated by both the people and the critics, prompting him also to write short stories and a book. The following translation is from Le doute m'habite, a series of writings collected by Christian Gonon."
