A very true love story, told in counterpoint, about friendship, politics and rock n roll.
In Barbara Browning’s eyes, Imre Lodbrog is the greatest aging French rock star you’ve never heard of, with the appeal of “Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan or Serge Gainsbourg on shrooms.” For Imre Lodbrog, music is an alter-ego experience—a late-in-life outlet for a mild-mannered screenwriter deeply shaped by the generation of May ‘68. Both ask the same questions: What revolution has wreaked more havoc and beauty than rock ‘n’ roll? And why do a certain few geniuses inside every revolution go silent and unrecognized?
"In Browning’s sights is 'reality as we think we know it. Her prose walks in the front door, but by the time she leaves all the furniture of your mind has been rearranged and nothing is quite the same. Still, Régnier has held his ground, telling his story with a heartfelt, quiet dignity. Together, they put you in a place both familiar and not, perched somewhere between fact and absurdity, the past and the present." - David Duchovny
