Description

From celebrated playwright-novelist Yasmina Reza comes an unprecedented account of her year spent with French president Nicolas Sarkozy. This utterly unorthodox portrait is written in a captivatingly impressionistic style: their exchanges exist as a play of words and glances, framed as scenes from a headlong drama. Along the campaign trail, in strategy sessions, and at meetings with heads of state, writer and politician develop a relationship that knows no parallel.

Praise For Dawn Dusk or Night

“[Reza is] a splendid observer-nothing gets by her.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Quite possibly the most innovative and startling report on a political campaign ever written.”

“Brilliantly evocative. . . . captivating. . . . A contemplation of a man struggling with the evanescence of time. This is the campaign trail as we have never seen it before.”
