L'Affaire Norman William

Top of page

Meet Norman William, a.k.a. Pierre Doris Maltais, born in East Angus, Québec. He is also Piel Petjo Maltest or Dr. Man or the Prince of Faucigny-Lucinge Malatesta or Sag Molinn Tiam. Norman William has had over a dozen identities and as many roles in international politics, finance and humanitarian undertakings. Jacques Godbout tracked him down somewhere in Europe, and found him living without papers, hounded by the law and by the press, and licking the wounds of a twenty-eighth attempt on his life. Trying to shed some light on this remarkable and enigmatic man, Godbout questions his family, friends and acquaintances, his defenders as well as his detractors. But as the investigation deepens, so does the mystery surrounding Norman William. Will we ever know who he really is?
