James Graham lives in France, where he does research and occasional undercover work for French journalists. Published in Baffler, Charlie Hebdo and elsewhere, his 24-hour convenience store can be found at continentalriffs.substack.com. le Plouc de Paris (The Bastard of Paree) is his new novel. Bit parts in French films when they want a quiet American in the shadows. Jackie (Pablo Larrain) and Rickshaw Wars (Brennan Stultz) are his big hits. No literary ambitions, no academic affiliations.
