From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Christine Angot (born February 7, 1959) is a French novelist and playwright

Born Pierrette, Marie-Clotilde Schwartz (her mother's name) in in Ch√Ęteauroux, Indre, she is perhaps best known for her 1999 novel L'Inceste (Incest) which recounts an incestuous relationship with her father. It is a subject which appears in several of her previous books, but it is unclear whether these works are autofiction and the events described true. Angot herself describes her work - a metafiction on society's fundamental prohibition of incest and her own writings on the subject - as a performative (cf Quitter la ville).

Angot is also literary director for French publishers Stock
