Autobiography, if the picture is to be taken as read. Robert Laffont is probably the ghost writer.

The three chapters are probably available only to publishers who want to sample the book, Jones. We may have to wait for a leak.

Jean Michel Jarre

RODÉO MÉLANCOLIQUE

(Melancholic Rodeo)

Robert Laffont, October 2019, 400 pages

English sample chapter available

The life of Jean-Michel Jarre is a novel no author could ever have imagined, one that mixes determination with the unbelievable, commitment and the unexpected, sincerity and the sensational, solitude and the masses. He now recounts his mad and completely unorthodox journey in this stunning book, much more than amere biography of a famous musician, but rather a captivating rodeo.

The hand of John Cage, my mother’s courage and heroism, trains, all the trains, my grandfather playing records on his portable Teppaz, clowns and tears, Jean Vilar’s firefighter, the stroke of Pierre Boulez’s baton, the knitting machine, ennui and Chateau Marmont, the Saint-Ouen flea market and the trumpet violin, 1968-1972, Pierre Schaeffer and Les Shadoks, women and After Eights, Chagall’s ceiling for the Paris Opera, whores and soldiers, Christophe’s “Mots bleus”and “Paradis perdus,” the moment the Chinese discovered expresso, guitar and synths, Lady Di’s safety pin, the walls of my bedroom, Berlin and elsewhere, Houston and NASA, Pope Jean Paul II’s feet, Chet Baker’s trumpet, Lyon and elephants, Beijing, Moscow, Paris, the Pyramids, the friend of the student in Tiananmen Square, an ugly woman in Hollywood, Chopin and Lech Walesa, Oxygène and oxymorons, the music of Pierre Soulages, 2001 and Vestiges of the Future, the Docklands concerts, the resistance of Edward Snowden, the bust of Beethoven, Coachella and the Sahara, Salvador Dali calling me, Charlotte’s compass whistle, the little girl and the Star of Lenin, Nino Rota, the trees of the Forbidden City, the Germans and the Nazis, a billboard in Los Angeles, Pollock and electronica, the solitude of a sound chaser, the loss of my father. Beyond this inventory à la Jacques Prévert, what is it meant for? What logic is there in all this? When Jean-Michel Jarre launches into telling us his story, at once intimate and universal, his writing takes the reader right to the heart of world full of the extraordinary, of meetings, trips, sounds, emotions, untranquility, sensuality, shadows and lights, all giving rhythm to a subterranean melancholy.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Jean-Michel Jarre is a pioneer of electronic music, whose success is still growing today. He rose to fame during the 1970s and 80s, and has to date sold 80 million albums worldwide. He has now chosen to recount his completely unorthodox journey for the first time.

Mélancolique Rodéo by Jean-Michel Jarre

"I always thought that my first book, if there was one, would be a novel, even though I was aware that a first novel, anyway, is a disguised reflection of its existence. I was convinced to write ... an autobiography." - Jean-Michel Jarre
