Éric Chevillard


Born
in La Roche-sur-Yon, France
June 18, 1964

Genre


Éric Chevillard is a French novelist. He has won awards for several novels including La nébuleuse du crabe in 1993, which won the Fénéon Prize for Literature.

His work often plays with the codes of narration sometimes to the degree that it is even difficult to understand which story is related in his books, and has consequently been classified as postmodern literature. He has been noted for his associations with Les Éditions de Minuit, a publishing-house largely associated with the leading experimental writers composing in French today.

“Kreb blättert in seinem Kalender und antwortet, nein, zu schade, zu seinem großen Bedauern könne er bei dem Fest nicht dabei sein, habe er doch vor, ausgerechnet an diesem Abend allein zu Hause zu bleiben und sich anzuöden.”
Éric Chevillard, The Crab Nebula

“Schmerzlich? An und für sich, nein, ehrlich gesagt spüren Sie nichts, aber es hält Sie da etwas fest, Sie werden behindert, so mancher Freuden beraubt, unmöglich, sich zu rühren, wenn man wie Kreb einen Fuß zwischen Himmel und Erde eingeklemmt hat, weil man sich durch einen dummen Zufall gerade vor Ort befand, als die beiden aneinandergefügt wurden und ihre Ränder an einer einzigen kreisförmigen Linie eng aneinander haften blieben: Sie werden ihr ganzes Leben am Horizont verbringen. Nach einigen nutzlosen Versuchen - ob lachhaft oder erbärmlich, weiß man nie so genau - versucht Kreb nicht länger, sich freizumachen. Er wird dort altern.”
Éric Chevillard, The Crab Nebula

“Wie oft wird er den Himmel falten müssen, damit er in seine Tasche passt?”
Éric Chevillard, The Crab Nebula
