A Gainsbourg Evening at ARTBOOK @ Paper Chase
On a warm Tuesday evening at the ARTBOOK @ Paper Chase showroom in Hollywood, the Paris-based biographer Gilles Verlant waxed poetic about the life and times of the legendary French chanteur, actor and director Serge Gainsbourg. Joining Verlant were TamTam Books publisher Tosh Berman and translator Paul Knobloch. Tuesday's event was a celebration of Verlant's newly translated Gainsbourg biography. The panel kept the standing-room-only crowd riveted with stories and anecdotes about the late, great pop icon—the French Cole Porter.
In putting together this biography, Verlant spent hundreds of hours interviewing Gainsbourg himself, as well as his relatives, and, of course, his many lovers—including Jane Birkin and Brigitte Bardot.
