Quarante-cinq histoires d’automobilesof the Magnum agency (photographs) & Bruno Gibert (texts)
Publication date 2007 octobre 26
This selection of photographs from the Magnum agency is a journey through the automobile myth. The micro fictions imagined by Bruno Gibert, based on each photograph, build a Pleiad of bitter-sweet small tales about men and women who drive cars, pamper them, break them, or simply live among them.
After Claude (2000) which obtained the First novel Award (prix du Premier roman), Bruno Gibert published Les Écrivains (2002), Le sol de Mars (2003), Juste né (2005) and Réussir sa vie (2006). All his books were published by Stock. He is also an author and an illustrator of children’s books.
