Author's words about the book
« “L’Univers Rêvé” (The Dreamed Universe) is a concept. An idea developed around a question: What if our inner reality materialized and surrounded us? We all project ourselves in our imagination, so we all live somewhere in a Dreamed Universe. The story is also inspired by my years after leaving university. At the time of our lives when nights out and evenings with friends are accompanied by a quest for self and direction. »
