About Roland Topor

  • Roland Topor (7 January 1938 – 16 April 1997) was a French illustrator, cartoonist, comics artist, painter, novelist, playwright, film and TV writer, filmmaker and actor, known for the surreal nature of his work.
  • He was of Polish-Jewish origin.
  • His parents were Jewish refugees from Warsaw.
  • He spent the early years of his life in Savoy, where his family hid him from the Nazi peril.He died of a cerebral hemorrhage.
  • The night before this event, it is reported he couldn’t sleep, spending the night visiting Parisian cafes, enjoying Cuban cigars, drinking Bordeaux wine, and—when at the Cafe de Flore—recounting a nightmare he dreamed, that he thought might inspire his next novel: I'm awakened suddenly by a feeling of imminent disaster.
  • Turning down the sheet, I discover a cadaver in my bed, the husk of a man of small stature, but fat, and of an age equal to mine.
  • My first reflex is to jump to the telephone to warn the police.
  • But I hesitate; the presence of this rotting carcass in my bed is embarrassing.
  • Explanations will be demanded of me that I'll be incapable of furnishing.
  • They'll suspect me of a crime that's abominable."
