Give or take the odd bout of flu, Poisson Chat had never been ill in his life. He could run for a taxi, climb stairs, play the guitar, drive in the fast lane. He lived for the moment, for the good times. And he wanted all the women the world could offer him. Until the day, that is, when an unfortunate car accident lands him more dead than alive in Garches hospital. He spends the next fourteen months there recovering and getting used to the idea that, short of a miracle, he will be a quadraplegic for the rest of his life. In this razor-sharp, very funny tragicomedy, Poisson Chat navigates his way through morphine induced nightmares and overwhelming feelings of helplessness to discover that his love of life runs deeper than the alcohol that used to course through his veins. And even flat on his back the women still love him. They might be on prescription now, but Poisson Chat's life still has sex and drugs - and rock and roll. A truly surprising novel.
