Cécile Coulon

Cécile Coulon was born in 1990. After doing an intensive foundation course in literature at Clermond-Ferrand after secondary school, she went on to study modern literature. She is currently dedicated to her thesis on “sport and literature”.

Her first novel, The Thief of Life, and her collection of short stories, The Wild, were published by Éditions Revoir.

In addition to her heightened taste for literature, from Steinbeck to Luc Dietrich, Nathalie Sarraute to Marie-Hélène Lafon, including Tennessee Williams, Stephen King and Prévert, she is passionate about cinema (The Night of the Hunter, The Big Lebowski, Last Year at Marienbad, Pasolini, Bruno Dumont, Duncan Tucker, Larry Clark, and John Waters) and music (Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, Ramones, Lesley Gore, Otis Redding and John Legend).

Five of her novels have been published by Éditions Viviane Hamy : Beware of Well-behaved Children (2010), The King is not Sleepy (2012), awarded the Prix Mauvais Genres (France Culture and Le Nouvel Observateur) the same year, The Sufferer’s Laugh (2013), The Heart of the Pelican (2015) and Three Seasons of Thunderstorms, awarded the Prix de Libraires in 2017.
