After studying modern literature, Camille Laurens taught in France and then spent twelve years as a teacher in Morocco. She now lives in Paris, and is the author of an autobiographical narrative, Philippe (1995), and eight novels, including Dans ces bras-là (Prix Femina 2000), L’amour, roman (2003), Ni toi ni moi (2006), all published by Folio and translated into numerous languages. Laurens’s most recent novel, Romance nerveuse, was published in January 2010 by Gallimard. She has also authored a number of playful explorations of the French lexicon, published in three books: Quelques-uns (1999), Le Grain des mots (2003), and Tissé par mille (2007), a collection of the columns she wrote for the French radio station France Culture. Passionate about art, she has collaborated with photographer Remi Vinet for Cet absent-là (2004) and performed in lecture-concerts with the electro-acoustic composer Philippe Mion, (CD Tissé par mille, coll. A voix haute, Gallimard, 2007).
