People talking about the Picardy they love


"In his book Verlaine Avant-Centre, published in 2002, Jean-Louis Crimon takes a look over all the ingredients that made his childhood in Somme so magical, to immortalise these memories forever: the football matches, the heart of the story, Rem biscuits, France-Football, Reims Stadium, vache bleue cheese, as well as the playing fields in his village of Contay in Somme. Just after the book came out, Jean-Louis Crimon visited the multimedia library in Noyelles-Godault, in Pas de Calais. The man who recounted his childhood with such sweetness and passion is now a celebrated journalist and author. With a literature enthusiast friend of mine, we went to Contay and visited his childhood home, the church, the cemeteries. That day, there was even a game of ballon au poing (fist ball), a game we'd never heard of in Pas de Calais!"
