AT FNAC DES TERNES, 6PM, w/DE PALMA & LEHMAN
Another book signing is scheduled in Paris for Are Snakes Necessary? Co-authors Brian De Palma and Susan Lehman will be at fnac des Ternes in Paris at 6pm on June 1, 2018, to sign copies of the novel. Two days earlier, De Palma and Lehman will sign books at 7pm May 30th at Librairie Millepages in Vincennes, an eastern suburb of Paris. On June 2nd, they will sign books at the Cinémathèque bookstore, following a De Palma Masterclass and screening of Casualties Of War.
A few days ago, Thierry Corvoisier posted the book cover for Are Snakes Necessary? on Instagram, adding what appears to be an adline blurb for the book: "Politics is a dirty business. It's war. Politics of the jungle. One big and dirty war. And in war, no matter what is right or wrong, you have to survive." A day earlier, Rivages' Nathalie Zberro posted an image of the book on Instagram, mentioning that the Saul Bass-inspired cover is illustrated by Vincent Roché. "A femme fatale, an election campaign, incisive dialogue and poisonous charm," Zberro writes in the post. "Brian De Palma and Susan Lehman publish their first novel at Rivages Noir."
