There’s a brand new excerpt from ‘Serge Gainsbourg: A Fistful of Gitanes’ in the influential UK web magazine The Quietus – the chapter on Gainsbourg’s best-known song, the sexy and controversial Je T’Aime…Moi Non Plus and the lovers who inspired it and sang it. You can read it here.

For anyone who missed US webzine Salon‘s excerpt from Sylvie’s acclaimed biography of Gainsbourg – this one about how a shy French Jew, forced to wear a yellow star by the Nazis as a child and mocked by prostitutes in his teens, became the sexiest man in Paris – here’s a link.

And here’s an in-depth interview with Sylvie – in English and in French – about her and Gainsbourg and how she came to be his English biographer.
