Born in Paris in 1972, Colas Gutman is an actor and author. He writes his novels in exactly the same position he took as a young boy doing his homework: stretched out on his bed or perhaps sitting in a chair, using a comic as his desk pad. His first work Rex, ma Tortue (Rex, My Turtle) appeared in 2006 and won the Mille Page.
