Writer's Monday with Mathias Malzieu
Writer, singer and film director Mathias Malzieu will be the special guest at the next Lundi des Ecrivains, on Monday November 6 at 6.30pm.
He will present L’Extraordinarium, a superb literary object worthy of his abundant imagination:
L’Extraordinarium is a book that brings together all Mathias Malzieu’s literary work, from his most emblematic novels, such as La Mécanique du cœur and Journal d’un vampire en pyjamas, to his poetry. But it will also be a chance to discover no fewer than ten previously unpublished texts, which will be inserted between each novel, offering a book to be read as one immense grand story!
As places are limited, this literary event is only available with a reservation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It will be hosted by the excellent Baptiste Liger, editorial director of Lire Magazine, and organized in partnership with the bookshop La Procure.
Mathias Malzieu is a friend of Les Deux Magots. We’ve had the pleasure of welcoming him to our home several times, always charmed by his poetic universe and the generosity with which he shares it. We’re delighted to welcome him on November 6, to discuss the new stories and characters born of his boundless imagination.
L’Extraordinarium contains La Mécanique du coeur, Le Plus Petit Baiser jamais recensé, Maintenant qu’il fait tout le temps nuit sur toi, Métamorphose en bord de ciel, Journal d’un vampire en pyjama, Une sirène à Paris and Le Guerrier de Porcelaine.
It also contains ten previously unpublished texts:Prologue par Giant Jack en très grande personne, Madeleine et John, Middle Jack, Giant Jack contre Dame Oclès, Le Retour de Dame Oclès, Tom CLoudman Junior, Retour au Glowerburger, Gaspard le Surprisier and L’Orphelinat des amis imaginaires oubliés.
This magical universe can also be explored through music, with the simultaneous release of the album L’Extraordinarium, recorded by Mathias Malzieu with his band Dionysos, followed by several show dates from February 2024.
