the opening to his 1983 short story “La ville aux milles musées.” The translation “A City of Museums” appeared in Issue 25 of Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet and A Life on Paper, both from Small Beer Press.

And huge congratulations to the author for winning the prestigious triennial Prix Henri Cornélus from the Académie royale de langue et de littérature française de Belgique for his body of work. A tremendous honor!

I got to hang out with G.-O. a little last week while he was in Muret for the 26th annual Prix du Jeune Écrivain. For many years, the author has been on the prize jury and run writing workshops for its young participants. Last Thursday, a day of staggering heat, writers of all ages took a day off from the intensive workshop schedule. G.-O. and I taped this on the fly in the living room at the farm where writers he, his fellow Neofictionist Jean-Claude Bologne, and Alain Absire had been put up for the week. It was a day of chatting lit and taking a dip in the pool to get out of the heat.

Here is a photo, taken by Nicole Taylor, of A Life on Paper at the Small Beer table at Readercon. Yay Holly Black’s The Poison Eaters!
