Bibliotopia 2024 | Interview with Emma Becker

"Intimacy, Freedom and Power"
Moderated by Pascale Frey

Emma Becker, French novelist, lived in Berlin before settling in the south of France. From "Monsieur" (Constable, 2012, tr. Maxim Jakubowski) and "Alice" (Denoël, 2015) to "La maison" (Flammarion, 2019, Prix France Culture-Télérama) and "L’inconduite" (Albin Michel, 2022), her autobiographical work explores bodies and hearts driven by all states of desire. With her uncompromising style and fierce freedom, she examines the status of women, relationships of domination, and sexuality in all their forms, including sex for sale. "Odile l’été" (Julliard, “Fauteuses de trouble”, 2023) departs from the male gaze, recounting a feminine awakening to love.
