PASCALE KRAMER is a Swiss French novelist, a widely read and published French fiction writer, garlanded with Prizes. She was born in Geneva, grew up and studied in Lausanne and moved to Paris in her ‘20s. She published her first novel in 1982, 14 books in total, translated into several languages, but, as is the way of our English-speaking world, only 3 out of 14 of her novels have so far been published in English. But we are going to change that and hopefully we will with her latest, exquisitely observed novel Une Famille (pub. Flammarion). In this interview, ahead of her participation as Guest Author in BCLT’s Summer School French translation workshop, Pascale Kramer talks to Rosie Goldsmith, about her life and work.
