About the Author

1999 Grand Prize winner from the readers of Elle (France)

About the Book

Agitation : it's a high! It's our turn-of-millennium malaise, but it's also a source of jubilation.

Agitation : it's a high! It's our turn-of-millennium malaise, but it's also a source of jubilation.

This book is smart, fun, witty and stylish. It's a user's guide for everyone who is burning to see, to go, to do. It's a hymn to the intoxication, the thrill, and the inspiration of life in the fast lane!

"Agité " could become a new household word, replacing "hyper" in our vocabulary for the new era. This is a light-hearted day trip for the long distance runner, erudite without a hint of heaviness.
