Phillipe Lançon is a journalist and writer. He has been a reporter and cultural critic for Libération, where he has worked since 1994, and a columnist for Charlie Hebdo since 2003. That's where he met Georges Wolinski. He has published several books, including Les îles (Lattès, 2011), L'Élan (Gallimard, 2013) and Le Lambeau (Gallimard, 2018), which won the Prix Femina. He also writes short stories for the Nouvelle Revue Française and columns for L'Amateur de cigare, a magazine that Wolinski liked and had interviewed him several times. Cuba was one of their common passions.
