Lazy Saturday

Sleeping late, working out, enjoying a long lunch, finishing reading Parisians. Which has many engaging parts, including the Juliette Gréco-Miles Davis romance as a screenplay, true and fake assassination attempts on de Gaulle and Mitterrand in the style of police reports, May 68 as a pompous academic paper with a twist and an edge, and the grandiose modernization of Paris under Pompidou and Chirac expressed in a language that parallels the drawings of Tardi or Bilal.
