Traversée maussade sur la rivière enchantée, octobre 1975 C. DR
It is a surprising picture. We are accustomed to seeing pictures of parents, grandparents, out-of-town aunts and uncles, nephews, nieces and cousins boating on the enchanted river of the Jardin d’Acclimatation. But here, 5 people, Jacques Grange, Pascal Grégory, François-Marie Banier, Jean-Marc Roberts and Bettina, his wife. It is the banner on Gallimard’s recently published book entitled François-Marie by Jean-Marc Roberts. A story of friendship dating back to adolescence that slowly dissipated over time, a beautiful text by Roberts, endearing anecdotes about Banier, and of course, the destruction of a few common places and clichés about the personage.
