I now live in a chateau about half a mile out, and none of my clients knows where… it has an incredible mediterranean view from the terrace. Besides four members of my staff, André Breton and Victor Serge and their wives live here. Breton is particular fun: I like the Surrealists. The first night, for instance, he had a bottle full of Praying Mantises, which he released at dinner like so many pets.
