Le Scenaroman

Claude Chounlasane on the concept of the "scénaroman" (a French neologism for screenplay novel):

"My goal is that readers not so much read a novel as regard a film -- except that this film here is made of words, not images that move. This is the philosophy of the scenaroman: one does not read a book, rather one "reads" a movie."

Claude's blog is entitled Scenaroman, and the work his is posting is called "Un Gars Trop Chanceux" ("A Very Lucky Guy"). You can read his work here.

(Note: it is in French).
