Read full description of the books:

Une monstrueuse jeune fille, Hazel, atrocement défigurée par un bombardement ; un vieillard, le Capitaine O. Loncours, à quai depuis longtemps ; une maison biscornue d'où tous les objets réfléchissants, des miroirs jusqu'aux petites cuillères, ont disparu : décidément, l'île de Mortes-Frontières la bien-nommée abrite de bien étranges secrets, jalousement gardés par les sbires du capitaine, qui fouillent sans pitié tous ceux qui s'y aventurent... Françoise, la jeune infirmière appelée au chevet d'Hazel, en fait l'expérience, mais le plus mystérieux l'attend à l'intérieur : il lui faudra soigner Hazel, mais sans jamais poser la moindre question, sous peine de mort. Drôles de conversations, alors, que celles des deux jeunes femmes... Comme à chaque fois depuis Hygiène de l'assassin, Amélie Nothomb prend un malin plaisir à jouer de notre curiosité malsaine pour les histoires un peu sordides, sans hésiter à nous brutaliser de sa plume acérée. "J'adore votre façon de raconter de jolies histoires pour ensuite en poignarder la poésie" : ces quelques mots de Françoise pour Hazel désignent certainement Amélie ! --Karla Manuele

Read information about the author

Ebook Mercure read Online! Amélie Nothomb, born Fabienne Claire Nothomb, was born in Etterbeek, Belgium on 9 July 1966, to Belgian diplomats. Although Nothomb claims to have been born in Japan, she actually began living in Japan at the age of two until she was five years old. Subsequently, she lived in China, New York, Bangladesh, Burma, the United Kingdom (Coventry) and Laos.

She is from a distinguished Belgian political family; she is notably the grand-niece of Charles-Ferdinand Nothomb, a Belgian foreign minister (1980-1981). Her first novel, Hygiène de l'assassin, was published in 1992. Since then, she has published approximately one novel per year with a.o. Les Catilinaires (1995), Stupeur Et Tremblements (1999) and Métaphysique des tubes (2000).

She has been awarded numerous prizes, including the 1999 Grand Prix du roman de l'Académie française; the Prix René-Fallet; and twice the Prix Alain-Fournier.

While in Japan, she attended a local school and learned Japanese. When she was five the family moved to China. "Quitter le Japon fut pour moi un arrachement" ("Leaving Japan was a wrenching separation for me") she writes in Fear and Trembling. Nothomb moved often, and did not live in Europe until she was 17, when she moved to Brussels. There, she reportedly felt as much a stranger as everywhere else. She studied philology at the Université Libre de Bruxelles. After some family tensions, she returned to Japan to work in a big Japanese company in Tokyo. Her experience of this time is told in Fear and Trembling. She has written a romanticized biography (Robert des noms propres) for the French female singer RoBERT in 2002 and during the period 2000-2002 she wrote the lyrics for nine tracks of the same artist. Many ideas inserted in her books come from the conversations she had with an Italian man, from late eighties and during the nineties. She used the French Minitel, while he used the Italian Videotel system, connected with the French one. They never met personally.
