Authors like Catherine Cusset
Catherine Cusset (born in Paris, May 16, 1963) is a best-selling French novelist and the author of Life of David Hockney: A Novel (Other Press, 2019), The Story of Jane (Simon & Schuster, 2001), and 12 other novels published by Éditions Gallimard between 1990 and 2018. Some of her novels (Jouir, La Haine de la famille, Confessions d'un radine, and New York, Journal d’un cycle) are described as autofiction, a French literary movement that is a hybrid of fiction and autobiography. Others are more romantic, but all share some recurring themes: the family, desire, and cultural conflicts between France and America. She stands out from her contemporaries with a direct, incisive, visual form of writing, marked by the influence of Anglo-Saxon novelists.
