Megha (hearthewindsing) | 13 comments She doesn't seem to have an English wikipedia entry, that has to be a sign of being buried.

Here is a page listing her bibliography and works about her: http://halfaya.org/redonnet/

Her official website: http://marie.redonnet.monsite-orange.fr/

From Britannica: "Marie Redonnet’s prose fictions sit at the edge of popular culture, in a bizarre blend of realism and fantasy, engaging in confident negotiation with the myths and forms of both maternal and paternal."

From answers.com: "French author of a striking trilogy: Splendid Hôtel (1986), Forever Valley (1987), and Rose Mélie Rose (1987). Each text elaborates a female strategy for survival in a strange and symbolic, fin-du-monde universe."

Thanks, Megha. I find a few reviews for her from amongst my Friend-clack; knig, MJ, and Nate D. Those reviews should earn some Likes from the likes of us. http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/...

And thanks too Megha cuz one of your links up there reminded me of that wonderful Cambridge gemerald known as Schoenhofs books, where they may not know your name, but they can get you that not-English language book yer hankering for.
