The Day They Came by Gerard L Breissan

The gripping story of a teenager and young adult's adventures in the South of France and the African Congo. Gérard meets and forms an unbreakable bond with the alien Eudoxus, who becomes his mentor and guardian angel. He recounts the fisherman Etienne's story about a terrifying and extraordinary storm off Le Grau du Roi in the French Camargue, when six men lost their lives. The story ends when Gerard is twenty-one. Like the writer, whose name he shares, he joins the hospitality industry to see the world. Throughout the narrative and as he grows up and matures, Gerard struggles to remain true to himself, and to find the correct path in life.

About the Author

GERARD LOUIS BREISSAN is a native of Aix-en-Provence in the South of France and a Canadian citizen. As a boy, he studied classical literature and showed an early gift for writing, winning many school and regional prizes, which were sponsored by Hachette the publishers and the Lycée Mignet.
Since 2005, he has been working and living in China, where he is the Head of Hospitality and Tourism Management at Jilin University-Lambton College in Changchun, China, taking the chance also to travel around the country to learn about Chinese culture and traditions.
Breissan tells us that many extraordinary events occurred throughout his early years, which he has always felt a compulsion to divulge. In The Day They Came he finally speaks out. It is sometimes difficult to distinguish fact from fiction, but you, the reader, must decide.
