Tagged: Author

(1974-    ) French singer – he is lead singer of the French band Dionysos – and author whose novel, La mécanique du coeur (2007; trans Sarah Ardizzone as The Boy with the Cuckoo-Clock Heart 2009), is fantasticated out of Steampunk tropes: an infant, born in Scotland in 1874 in savagely cold weather, has a frozen heart, which is replaced on the spot by a cuckoo clock. When he reaches adolescence, romantic love upsets his ticker. [JC]
