Interview with Regarts.org

In this interview I talked a bit about The Sewer Rat, and the title of the sequel. The interview with me was in English, translated into French by my publisher.

"I started The Sewer Rat in 2019 and finished it in 2020 with no intention of publishing it. It was something very personal, like a “frame” in which to hold my feelings. But I'm a bit of a narcissist and of course I've had people I know read it, just for the sake of the ritual. Then I met √Čtienne Gomez on Twitter. He had just published an interview with a friend of mine. I introduced myself in his PM, we started talking and one day I had enough confidence in him and I decided to send him the manuscript. I knew he was a publisher but I didn't expect him to be interested in it. So when he told me he wanted to publish it, I was confused. It took him a year to decide, then the contract arrived and then the translation was done quickly. It's a bit unreal, this first publication in French, but in the end it is for French readers that this book was intended."
