Julien Leclercq was born in 1982. He lives in Paris and the Gers region in the South West of France where he runs a communication agency called Com’Presse. He has published two essays that tried to defend business managers with a pinch of salt and cynicism (Chronique d’un salaud de patron, éd. Les Cavaliers de l’orage, and Journal d’un salaud de patron, éd. Fayard), and is currently preparing a book to showcase the bold people who work in the shadows with enthusiasm to make their country better—in striking contrast with public figures taking advantage of the crisis. L’homme qui ne voulait pas devenir président is his first novel.
