Website


Born in Casablanca, Morocco, Thierry Cohen moved to France at the age of two in a family with five children. After a dramatic childhood, he found comfort reading books. He discovered literature, particularly American, for its diversity and richness (Hemingway, Steinbeck, Isaac Bashevis Singer, Jack Kerouac, John Fante, Norman Mailer, Jim Harrison, Philip Roth, etc.). He began writing without telling a soul, just for the pleasure of putting his emotions into words. He wrote I'd Rather Have Lived following the suicide of his best friend, in order to exorcise the pain, to tell others the story of his friend's decision so they'd avoid making it themselves. He never considered it might be published.

“Life is worth more than man will ever know. Each of our choices open up the possibility of a different world. Every time we wake up, the universe puts itself in our hands. So many paths. So many choices. Our discernment is the only way to tell which one leads to happiness.”
Thierry Cohen, Still with Me

“Les souvenirs n’appartiennent qu’à ceux qui ont su vivre les instants de leur vie. Ils prennent leur place dans un album de photos et racontent une histoire. Quand l’existence n’a été qu’une attente, on ne possède que les cartes postales adressées par nos regrets de lieux où nous ne sommes pas allés de personnes que nous n’avons pas connues.”
Thierry Cohen, Si tu existes ailleurs

“En fait, je crois que personne n’a réellement peur de la mort. Nous avons seulement peur de ne pas avoir le temps de nous habituer à l’idée de mourir faute d’avoir compris ce que vivre signifie.”
Thierry Cohen, Si tu existes ailleurs
