Je suis un être exquis by Jean Yanne( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in French and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cambronne ne mâchait pas ses mots. Heureusement pour lui. Je ne suis pas plus ému en jouant un assassin d'enfants qu'en faisant de la publicité pour les nouilles. La promenade des Anglais à Nice, c'est bien le seul endroit où les chiens glissent sur des crottes de vieux. La connerie, c'est comme le judo, il faut utiliser la force de l'adversaire. " Le cynisme est dans les choses, pas dans le coup d'oeil ", nous dit Jean Yanne. Ce personnage acide et drôle tournait en dérision les travers de notre société avec le décalage et la cruauté qui lui étaient propres. Un hommage à son humour dévastateur
