Jean-Bernard Bonnot, the main character of the book, could all by himself symbolize our time, eternally unemployed, writer in his spare time, seducer, vaguely professor of philosophy… He spends his life in cafes wondering about our beginning of XXI century. One day, thanks to the meeting of a wealthy American and an Italian crook, he enters despite himself into an introspection that will plunge him into the heart of the art world, into the heart of his own madness.

If this novel can serve as a manual on how to get out of it in times of crisis, it also offers, with a lot of humor and a certain darkness, a reflection on reality and concealment.
