Par Michel Hajji Georgiou

From this broken hill

« Profiling Michel Hajji Georgiou in a few lines, even as a short bio, is a lost test of writing skills. Despite his young age, Michel is the faithful memory of legendary poets, actors and movie makers. Nurtured by Georges Brassens, fathered by Leonard Cohen, and cradled by Lautreamont and Pessoa, Michel is poetry alive! In this collection, dreamt in French (his mother tongue) and written in English, we find that distinctive passion of his. A rare flame, authentic and poignant, resonating and powerful, that will grab the reader by the innards, from that very space where Michel inks his pen. “From this broken hill” is the dense recount of a life’s timeline, through the prism of the author’s emotions, made bare and revealed raw to the reader… In it we will find the indelible stamp of all those who make up Michel’s cultural genes: Baudelaire, Tom Waits, Charles Cros, Nick Drake, Tim Buckley, Frederico Garcia Lorca, Fabrizio de André, Joni Mitchell…. If only to mention the essential mentors. »
