Anne Provoost’s (b. 1964) many-layered stories reveal themselves very gradually to the reader, creating a web of intense writing that gets under the reader’s skin. Provoost is not afraid of more difficult and topical themes and uses a sober and atmospheric style. Often her books are situated on the threshold between youth and adult literature. She has received numerous prestigious awards for her novels, both nationally and internationally. Her work has been published in over twenty languages.
