The man who retired from public life in recent years to fight brain cancer has also spoken out on this subject on several occasions. Declaring in particular, one day: “Ex-journalist, I would like to die at home, in my armchair, reading The Team Or The Sunday Journal. Or, better, in my bed, rereading Montaigne or Proust. But I never read in bed.”

I cannot forget that it was here, in Quincié, in the cellar, that I learned the pleasure of conversation. I know that a place awaits me in the cemetery in my parents’ grave.
