My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Just arrived from Australia through BM.

Man has not one and the same life. He has many lives,
placed end to end, and that is the cause of his misery.

by Chateaubriand

Opening Lines:
Everyone thought he was dead. When my book about his films was published in 1988, Hector Mann had not been heard from in almost sixty years.

After a terrible family tragedy, Professor David Zimmer starts a huge translation project, namely Chateaubriand’s Memoires D’Outre-Tombe, a book of 2,000 pages.

In the meantime, he becomes obsessed by a silent comedian Hector Mann who was living in a retired small village in New Mexico.

When he finally meets Hector, his life will change forever.
