node / TORONTO - Marie Darrieussecq at the International Festival of Authors

French author Marie Darrieussecq will be coming to Toronto for the 38th edition of the International Festival of Authors.

She will be introducing her latest book translated into English, Being Here Is Everything: The Life Of Paula M. Becker (Semiotext(e), September 2017), a moving account of the ground-breaking German painter, Paula Modersohn-Becker, the first woman in Art History to paint a nude self-portrait. Marie Darrieussecq will be presenting as well her latest novel, published in France in August, Notre vie dans les forêts ("Our life in the forests"), a technological dystopia, taking up again the tropes of her debut novel, Pig Tales

Each year, the International Festival of Authors of Toronto brings together over 100 participants from 20 countries for readings, talks, interviews, round table discussions, and award presentations. For more than 37 years, over 8,500 authors – including 22 Nobel Laureates – have appeared on the IFOA stage.

Marie Darrieussecq will participate in two panels at IFOA, on October 28th and October 29th.
