Summary/Abstract: When his volume of (false) memories, Journal en miettes (Journal in crumbs), was published, in 1967, Eugene Ionesco was already a leading figure of the French theater, regarded as a pioneer in drama, having now a lifetime experience, not at all linear, spent between Romania and France, so that his own self introspection was revealing a confused man, concerned about his own destiny. The Journal has numerous pages of genuine memoirs, filled with meditations on the condition, the state of existence and on its final moment, death.
