Mykonos, in Greece.
Attracting nearly 400,000 visitors each year, this small peaceful port in the Cyclades becomes from May to September a tourist Eden generous in universal pleasures (sun, dance, party, feta). But in March? Is there even a club open after midnight?
While wandering through the white and deserted streets, two nickel feet will provoke the gods without knowing it...

Between fantasy and comedy, this frenzied ethylic epic summons Hunter S. Thompson’s grand-guignolical humor as well as the art of mystery. Thompson as well as the art of mystery of the series Lost.

Press

“A hilarious pamphlet against the hedonistic illusion (...) The past weighs heavily, the economic crisis never ends, only poetry avenges us of our misfortunes... and this is how a failed stay in the Aegean Sea can give a little gem of humor and concision.”

Frédéric Beigbeder, Le Figaro Magazine.

“If the journey of these two friends turns into a catastrophe, the one that the reader makes is worth the detour.”

Florence Bouchy, Le Monde.

“A funny story (...) The important thing when you miss something is to do it well.”

Grazia.
