About the Author

Raymond Jean (1925-2012) wrote more than 40 books during his lifetime - novels, short-story collections and essays. He was awarded the Prix Goncourt de la nouvelle in 1983. His novella La Lectrice (Reader for Hire) became a cinema hit starring Miou-Miou. The film won the Cesar Award for Best Supporting Actor and was named the best feature at the 1988 Montreal World Film Festival.


'A clever, funny, and humane work that champions the power of literature.' David Mills, SUNDAY TIMES ------ 'An entertaining, sensuous and, above all, fun outing into the converging worlds of reading, language and sexuality.' Pam Norfolk, LANCASHIRE EVENING POST ------ 'Reader for Hire might be the perfect book - written with an elegance whose validity it also questions.' Joanna Walsh, NATIONAL ------ 'An excellent new translation of a novel ... written with a lightness of touch.' Harry Ritchie, DAILY MAIL
