Date Mille et Une Vies
In the age of globalisation and instant information, people have never before had so many identification models at their beck and call. Nowadays, you don’t choose a model for life, you choose several at the same time and you keep your options open so that you can change them. Whence the explosion of the matter of professional identity. As a philosopher by training, a people’s journalist (Voici, Allo !), a sitcom scriptwriter (La philo selon Philippe, TF1), a showbiz biographer (Michel Sardou, Francis Cabrel, France Gall and Michel Berger), a food critic, a writer of children’s books, Madame Soleil’s ghostwriter, director of a collection, novelist, art critic, author-composer-musician… Hugues Royer is also an artist.
