Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

"Time stands still when you're not having fun."
At the moment, I am reading Cobra by Deon Meyer, South Africa's most famous crime writer. Sadly, I am about to finish it (I don't think it will last a week, which means I will have to depart from the universe and characters he has created. I grew very attached to them. Especially professional pickpocket Tyrone Kleinbooi, whom I blogged about last month. I know becoming the victim of a pickpocket is one of the most distressing thing that can happen to you, but Meyer managed to make Tyrone a sympathetic character. He has, in his own twisted way, a certain kind of wisdom. I shared a bit of it in my first post about him. Now, I read another piece of his deep thoughts: "Time stands still when you're not having fun." I can relate to that. Now I hope my new favourite antihero will survive Cobra to give us in future novels more pieces of wisdom.
