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.

The death of a femme fatale
You might think Vraie Fiction is turning into an obituary blog since the 12th of August. But I learned yesterday that the legendary Lauren Bacall died. She was 89. I know at this age, it is not a tragedy, but all the same, I have to confess it saddened me more than the suicide of Robin Williams. She was the kind of sophisticated beauty that we don't see very often. Strangely enough, I watched The Big Sleep again this weekend, in which she played femme fatale Vivien Rutledge so brilliantly. Ironic, that a femme fatale should live to 89. This is the first thing that came to my mind.
