French Book Week: Julie Guinand

Born in Switzerland in 1989 Julie Guinand published her first novel, Survivante (Survivor) in 2019, an imaginary journal of a woman who has survived the ‘end of the world’. Praised for her fresh approach and eye for detail, Guinand approaches the universal theme of rebuilding the self after a traumatic rupture with humour and incisiveness. Her collection of short stories, Dérives asiatiques, set both in Asia and in Europe, has been described as original, elegant and refreshingly honest.
