Autobiographie pour Quais du Polar
I write novels, I’m just a novelist. Words added like: thriller, fantasy, don’t mean much, are purely commercial. For me, there are only two categories: bad stories and good stories.
: Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, John Le Carre
: Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, Tomas Alfredson
: Tennessee Williams
: Plane, Turtle (거북이 ‘비행기’)
