Description: 
This is a fake interview with a writer staged on the occasion of the release of his book. Literary parody of the real interviews where most of the time, unskilled interviewers have not read the book. A carrot is a microphone. The interviewer asks questions unformulated which first unsettle the writer.


Interviewer: "- first question," without elaborating.
The interviewee answers to what, in his imagination, could correspond to a "first question".This continues until the "question No. 6."
Then she reads an excerpt from her book.
She ends with completely absurd questions ("Tea or coffee?", "Sea or mountain? '" Why ").
At last, to conclude, the writer crunches the carrot-mike.
Outlines were developed between Sophie and Eve and a great deal depends on direct improvisation.
