Anais Nin Prize to Emmanuelle Richard

The Prix Anaïs Nin 2016 has been awarded to Emmanuelle Richard for her novel Pour la peau (Editions de l'Olivier, 2016), and we're thrilled to be handling the English-language rights.

Founded in 2015 by Nelly Alard (author of the recently published Couple Mechanics) and Capucine Motte (author of Apollinaria, une passion russe), the Prix Anaïs Nin provides up to 10,000 of funding for the prizewinning book to be translated into English.

Original […] courageous, masterful writing, with the author’s voice intensely present from start to finish. —Le Monde des livres

Dry, savage, lapidary, half way between the Annie Ernaux of Une passion simple and the later Duras. —Livres Hebdo
