I've just finished my PhD thesis on Denis Diderot's "Jacques le Fataliste et son Maître" and on Laurence Sterne's "The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman".
I’ve written a number of books: mostly fiction and philosophical essays.
I used to teach French Literature but I'm taking a couple of years away from the classrooms to focus on my writing.
My favorite sport is Kung Fu - I'm quite addicted to it: I need at least an hour of practice every day!
Finally, as far as politics and religion are concerned, I'm in complete agreement with this guy.
