Le Rêve aux Loups
Le Rêve aux loups is the final letter from a man condemned to death from the inside, the last of the sheep-rebels to whom justice and society won't give a chance, but whom he will nevertheless dupe to ensure the triumph of truth, personal honor and progress. Beyond the topical and interesting subjects that are like the two poles of a stack ready to explode - the family and terrorism - and their possible future interactions, the beginnings of which we already know, men on top of cranes or slitting the throats of their offspring, this vast tale covering themes and generations from young Europe to the far reaches of Asia is intended as an antidote to pain for all fathers betrayed by the system, as much as the heaviest indictment of contemporary French family justice.
"Les griffes du loup. The Devil's paw. There were five of them. Five on the list. Five in his head. Five at the party. And they were worth a hundred thousand dollars. So they could scream as loud as they wanted, all of them: the wolf loves nothing so much as an expression of fear, and for that very reason prowls in all horrific tales. He also relishes terror when he becomes the Beast of Gévaudan. Fear, in truth, is his feast. And Niklos had his answer: the Plan. Long, patient, inescapable: they would pay the ultimate price."

Vertes sont les femmes de l′aube (Poems & fulgures)
I'm a poet of youth. Not that my poetry belongs to youth, because in reality it's my whole being that emanates again and again, like a bed of embers, from that inferno, from that beginning of life that was so pure and so ardent. But youth clings on, it doesn't want to leave me just yet. And I'd like to keep it that way until the very last second, because I know of only one remedy for the incurable illness inherent in life: to become, to be and to remain a poet. Forever and ever.

Seeking producer for a rhythmic novel. SYNOPSIS:
Aline and Catarina are two complete strangers on vacation on the island of Reunion. Fate, however, will bring them together on a return flight to a nearby island.
... It all starts in Nancy with the couple Michel-Aline on a background of deceit. Rescued from a twin-engine plane crash in the Pacific, the couple finds refuge with other survivors on an uninhabited island. Help is slow, and for good reason ... So the time of robinsonnade, it, drags on that revives tensions in the couple and among witnesses taken to task.
On the spot, the friendships break up sowing the doubt among the survivors.
On Michel's side, paranoia wins. A game of cat and mouse ensues on an island that has suddenly become too small.
In this insular closed-door setting, the number of survivors dwindles.
The visit of a trio of scientists to this privileged place, protected from the general public, will give another dimension to the scenario of this restricted circle and, without a doubt, the fatal blow.
