Sarkozy, The Stranger

In a theatrical coup, he (Sarkozy) has allowed Yasmina Reza, France's biggest commercial playwright, to follow his every move in order to write a portrait of his "existential" inner being.
(...)
Reza said: "I wanted to write about the existential dimension of a politician... Sarkozy, whom I had never met, was the obvious choice."
(...)
Sarkozy is no doubt hoping the finished work will not share the title of another successful play by Reza Conversations After a Funeral.more...

It seems Sarkozy may be going all out French, although this really appears quite ridiculous to any foreigner. Hopefully for him this will not distract a campaign that has just barely started.
