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.

Today is the 4th of July and this means a very special day. I don't know if any of you noticed. Anyone? Okay, the title of this post gave it away (otherwise you wouldn't have guessed I'm sure): it is the birthday of South African crime writer Deon Meyer. He wrote some of my favourite crime fiction novels and I cannot think of a single book I have read of him (so far) where I have been disappointed or even underwhelmed. Not only are his books entertaining, they manage to remain intelligent and plausible at the same time. Meyer made me discover a completely new culture of crime fiction and I wanted to wish him happy birthday on this blog. So here it is, happy birthday maestro.
