In honor of the Flaneur project, I’ve decided to post this interview with Louis-Ferdinand Celine.  The man is a genius, and he’s from Paris.  If I remember correctly, I read somewhere once that his most famous novel, “Journey to the End of the Night,” started with him writing down short “sketches” throughout his day while wandering the streets of Paris, or sitting at cafes, etc.  It reminded me of the Flaneur…  Enjoy.
