AUTHOR : Gérard FRANCOEUR, retired physician, Paris.

     

It is at age nineteen that FRANCOEUR writes this novel, " DIAMONDS AND ASHES ".

The author was undertaking medical studies in Toulouse when the experience of one of his friends struck him. He decided then to tell the story of this strange affair.

Disconcerting, and even shocking, this novel comes from the author’s and its imagination’s observations.

   

In love with a prostitute José, a student of 23 years old, slowly slips into being a pimp. But does he realize what he’s doing ? Blinded by love and easy money, he gets himself into heavy juridical problems. He thus gets the occasion to face the justice in France and to reconsider its important flaws.

The action takes place in Toulouse, a town called "The Pink Town" and this place is described in all its magnificence.
