About this item

In America in the sixties, not believing in God was anti-American, wasn’t it?At fifty years of age, Roman Carr, whose real name is Romain Carrier, is at the peak of his career. His television seriesIn Gad We Trust, a scathing satire of the United States and its relationship with God, is a huge hit. He is carving out an enviable place for himself in Hollywood, the end of a long, tortuous journey for the man who fled his Gaspé Peninsula village in murky circumstances in 1962 at the age of seventeen.Both a coming-of-age story and a historical epic, Métis Beach is a chronicle of the great American Sixties. It recaptures the extraordinary liberation movements and social disturbances that marked that era, but most of all it vividly conveys the irrepressible idealism that carried along a whole generation. It is a celebration of the supreme good that the United States hoped to achieve: the coming of everyone’s right to be free.In America in the sixties, not believing in God was anti-American, wasn’t it?At fifty years of age, Roman Carr, whose real name is Romain Carrier, is at the peak of his career.
