“It's risky to try to determine the moments when a person's life is changed forever. I don't even know if such moments exist.”
Laurent Binet

“This scene is not really useful, and on top of that I practically made it up. I don't think I'm going to keep it.”
Laurent Binet, HHhH

“Je me souviens d'une interminable digression d'au moins quatre-vingts pages, dans Notre-Dame de Paris, sur le fonctionnement des institutions judiciaires au Moyen Age. J'avais trouvé ça très fort. Mais j'avais sauté le passage.”
Laurent Binet, HHhH
