:03:01
Did I answer your question?
:03:04
I'll try to be more specific...
:03:07
Were there ever a French young
woman on the train you met,

:03:09
and... spent an evening with?
:03:16
See, to me, that...
:03:19
that's not important, you know?
:03:20
So that's a "yes".
:03:23
All right, since I'm in France
:03:24
and this is last stop in
my book tour,

:03:26
"yes".
:03:30
Mr. Wallace,
:03:31
the book ends on an
ambiguous note.

:03:33
We don't know!
:03:34
Do you think they get back
together in six months,

:03:37
like they promise each other?
:03:42
Like they promised, uh...
:03:45
I think I answered that. You know, it's...
:03:49
It's a good test.
:03:50
Right? If you're a romantic
or a cynic.

:03:53
I mean, you think...
you think they get back together,

:03:56
you don't, for sure,
:03:58
and you hope they do,
but, you know, youÂ’re not sure

:04:00
so you're asking the question.
:04:02
And... do you think
they get back together?

:04:04
I mean, did you, in real life?
:04:08
Did I real...
:04:10
Look, see, in the words
of my grandfather, ok...

:04:13
to answer that,
:04:14
would take the piss
out of the whole thing.

:04:16
Oh, no...
:04:17
We just have the time
for one last question.

:04:20
What is your next book?
:04:25
I don't know, man,
I don't know...

:04:28
I've been...
:04:29
I've been thinking about this...
:04:31
Well, I always kind of wanted
to write a book

:04:34
that all took place within
the space of a pop song,

:04:38
you know, like 3 or 4 minutes long.
:04:41
The story, the idea is that...
:04:43
there's this guy.
:04:45
And...
:04:47
he's totally depressed!
:04:48
I mean, his great dream was to be
:04:50
a lover, an adventurer,
:04:52
you know, riding motorcycles
through South America,

:04:55
and instead he's sitting
at a marble table,

:04:57
eating lobster,
:04:58
and he's got a good job
and a beautiful wife, right.
