"Small Portions"

So the Big Great Day has come. The day of my – gulp – Book Launch! “Small Portions” is out and available, and I'm beside myself with excitement.

Now here's the presentation of my latest “baby”:
“Small Portions” is a story that comes in… small portions. In precisely 111 little parts – AND a recipe. To explore the many facets of modern life, I have chosen the literary form of vignettes, those short impressionistic scenes that focus on one moment or give a trenchant impression about a character, idea, setting, object.

I'm telling my own story in what I hope are poignant scenes that vary from a snapshot of my christening in the early 70s to my father’s death in a skiing accident at the beginning of the 2000s. It’s small things I'm talking about, those many small things that compose a life – my life. I recall the painful process of coming out of the closet, relate the first encounters and love stories of my happy-go-lucky twenties, delve into aspects and turning points of two long-time relationships. I take you by the hand and guide you through the streets of Paris, the city I'm living in. I write about food and the internet and my travel experiences in Greece, Morocco, Vienna, Tunisia, London…

In just so many carefully chosen words, sometimes poetic, sometimes blunt, but always with wry and self-deprecating humour, I attempt to create little universes with each story. Each one stands alone, yet when you link them together, another story takes shape. The story of a life, the sketch of a person, the mirror of a time. Our time.

The Book Launch Price is set to 0.99 dollars on amazon.com, 0.99 euros on amazon.de and amazon.fr. You can also purchase the book on any other local amazon platform such as amazon.co.uk or amazon.it. If you want to read my Kindle e-book, by the way, no need to buy the Kindle Reader. You just download the free reader from this amazon-link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html/ref=kcp_pc_mkt_lnd?docId=1000426311
