Impossibility is met with determination, perseverance with the unexpected, seriousness with the sensational and solitude with the crowd. He now recounts the story of his wild and completely unorthodox journey in this stunning book. It’s much more than a biography of a famous musician, but rather one of a captivating rodeo. When Jean-Michel Jarre launches into telling us his story which is at once intimate and universal, he transports the reader into the world of the extraordinary. Amazing encounters, journeys, sounds, emotion, turbulence, sensuality, darkness and light all merge to form a kind of deep-seated melancholy.

            « It would take a letter that came in the mail. A letter that reawakened my story. The city of Lyon, my birthplace, the “big” city of my childhood informed me that, soon, a street would bear my mother’s name. Rue France-Pejot. People are going to be born, live, and make love on Rue France-Pejot. And so now she is the one, the anonymous name among the three of us, who will receive the honors of posterity. She, a heroine of the French Resistance, and of obscurity, but in my eyes a heroine, period, she is bequeathed with the memory of a street and with it, eternal recognition. How magnificent is the irony of fate and truth, in which I saw a sign, the moment to start telling my story. 

            So here we go: from this heroine, I inherited, I hope, a little of her humor, her resourcefulness, and her vigilance. And, perhaps most of all, her resistance to abuses of power. My father’s abandonment left me with a visceral, and, at times, blind need to protect, help, save women and children, even, as has happened, against their will. Music, despite my chaotic beginnings—my first piano teacher hit my fingers with a ruler, I hated her, which is what I wrote on my bedrooms walls “I hate my piano teacher, I hate my piano teacher”—music has been what I dig my hands into every day, a sensual escape, my temptation as well as my salvation, and the garish mask over my solitude. My name is Jean-Michel Jarre, and the time has come to tell my story. »
