Laurent Van Vetter is a professional actor, screenwriter, playwright.

In particular, the work "The Bridge" included in this collection has been staged and translated into several other languages. The story is about two characters who meet for the first time on a bridge over a canal, and where each of them was about to commit suicide. Conversations on various topics, persuasions, frank confessions, disputes and reconciliations, which last until dawn and make two strangers close to each other, make them communicate with each other's pains.

A big stage unfolds in the pages of the play "The Stop", which, according to the author, can involve from 4 to 48 actors. It represents dozens of people living their lives who cross each other for a few minutes at that bus stop while waiting for their bus.

The book is published in the format of facing pages in French and Armenian.
