Yves Petry

Yves Petry (b. 1967) studied mathematics and philosophy. He was awarded the BNG Literature Prize for The Straggler, a novel about artificial intelligence and human emotions. His disconcerting novel The Virgin Marino attracted a large readership and won the prestigious Libris Literature Prize. Love So to Speak is a lucid book about a writer in a love triangle, about love and resentment. The Ghosts, his seventh novel, is a philisophical book that challenges the motivations of western aid workers in Africa.
