Matin brun

by Franck Pavloff


You are living a fine life. You read the newspaper and play cards with friends. Gradually—things start to change. You are told that brown is the only acceptable color: if you have a black dog, put it to sleep. Buy a brown one. Add "brown" at the end of each sentence. Books are being burned. But you don’t notice. People still go to cafes; you feel secure. You get a friendly new brown dog—how nice!
Only later do you realize that you have been a willing victim to a government that demands your conformity in all things. And by the time realization hits—it’s too late.
Franck Pavloff’s international best-selling allegory was written as a protest when the Rhone-Alps region of France leaned to the politics of the extreme right. Originally published in French, Brown Morning has now sold over 500,000 copies in Europe. It is a powerful wake-up call to all individuals to pay attention to what their governments are doing—and how they expect their citizens to think.
Beautifully illustrated with brown-and-white graphics, this book also includes the original French text, Matin Brun.
