François Vallejo teaches Literature. He has been published by Viviane Hamy since 1998. His novel West (2006), won the famous Radio Prize : Le Prix du Livre Inter, and stayed on the bestsellers’lists for one year (135,000 copies sold, all editions together). François Vallejo is not one of these writers who embroider all their work with the same subject. On the contrary, it is a matter of honour for him to explore entirely different universes in every single one of his novels. Only the elegance of his writing and the subtlety of the portraits can make the link between his stories.
