Almost seven years after the death of Yvan Audouard, this little book makes his voice heard once more.

To unite the thoughts, reflections and aphorisms which make up "Heureux les fêlés...", Françoise Audouard, Yvan's wife, reread each of the eighty-odd books of her husband's bibliography: Provençal tales, polemic essays, detective novels, novels and other subject-specific books.

Yvan Audouard always showed a preference for witty remarks, French haikus, and the epigram. But his talent wasn't confined to after-dinner wit.

With time he acquired a wisdom which he would share with everyone in the form of a sort of Provençal Buddhism.

You need only close your eyes to imagine yourself by his side, in the criss-crossing shadows of the apricot tree and fig tree of his garden in Fontvieille, the heart of his Provence, the centre of his world.

Author's biography - Versilio

Versilio is an editor who publishes authors of novels and non-fiction works, both literary and commercial.

Versilio’s vocation is to concentrate on a restricted number of projects in order to be able to accompany them from their initial conception to the final manuscript, thus ensuring both their digital and paper editions with its partners (Robert Laffont, Albin Michel, Flammarion, Gallimard…).

In order to satisfy the ever-changing needs of authors and readers within a constantly evolving market not only in terms of both communication and direct distribution of information, but also with regard to social networks, Versilio created the Slog. A combination of a S[ite] and a [B]log, a Slog is designed to showcase an author's creative world, to keep readers permanently up to date with their favourite authors and give them a chance to share and discuss their interests with an online community.

Furthermore, in line with the growing demand from online bookstores and the explosion of new media and social networks, Versilio's team includes not only all competences necessary for digital publishing (software engineering, designing, production, marketing) but also for the production of audio and video contents contributing to their promotion and enrichment (podcasts, author interviews, book trailers, advertisements and animations).

Thanks to the implementation of these new solutions in their dynamic set-up Versilio regularly collaborates with leading players in various fields (including Amazon, Kobo, Fnac, Google, Apple, Twitter, &c.) to promote both their authors and their authors’ works.

Versilio shares offices with Susanna Lea Associates in London, Paris and New York, and therefore benefits from an international perspective on the world of books, and the challenges brought about by the evolution of digital publishing.
