Famous French television journalist Patrick Poivre d’Arvor holds the record for the most televised newscasts, yet he has always pursued his writing career as well, and he is the author of nearly sixty works of fiction and non-fiction.
In 2010, two of his most recent books received high praise. La Bretagne vue par Patrick Poivre d’Arvor (Brittany viewed by Patrick Poivre d’Arvor) is a brilliant declaration of love for the Brittany region; Un mot de vous, mon amour (Words from you, my love) is an anthology of favorite love letters constituting a veritable ode to passion and a deep tribute to great poets and writers.
Patrick Poivre d’Arvor and his brother have recently co-authored Jusqu’au bout de leur rêves (All the way to the end of their dreams), a book celebrating the adventurers that have nourished their dreams. Finally, his latest book, Hemingway, la vie jusqu’à l’excès (Hemingway, life to an excess) is scheduled for publication by Arthaud in 2011.
