DANY LAFERRIÈRE: AUTOPORTRAIT DE PARIS AVEC CHAT Dany Laferrière

Of all Dany Laferrière’s writings, his newest book, Autoportrait de Paris avec chat, seems to be one of his most personal. Feeling a sense of liberation, he handwrote and drew sketches of his thoughts and emotions of the city where he now lives since his election to the prestigious Académie française. Meet the author as he discusses this fascinating “unidentified literary object.”
