I know, both movies are based on true lifes of outstanding artists. I realized that I liked this kind of stuff when beeing a teen I read "Claire de Lune" by Pierre La Mure. I can't remember who put that book on my hands. Was it my mother? All I know is once I declared I liked Claude Debussy music a lot, I got the book, and I loved it. I wonder if I would like to read it again. I haven't heard "La Cathédrale engloutie" in years and I don't remember when was the last time I finished a novel, only that it was Kundera's "The Unbearable Lightness of Being".
