Born in Paris in 1939, Bertrand Blier was best known as a film director (Hitler connais pas; Breakdown) until the publication in France of Going Places, his first novel, made him a best-selling author. Directed by Blier, the critically acclaimed film of Going Places, with Jean Moreau, was released in 1974.
