Christian GARCIN, author
Abécédaire balzacien [ Balzac Alphabet Book ]
Years ago, before even coming to the Musée Balzac on a writer's break (2017), Christian Garcin wrote a Balzac alphabet book that Editions du Lérot published in 2020. The book reflects a close bond with the author of The Human Comedy and a very personal take on this literary giant by another novelist.
