About the Author
Praise For Lives Other Than My Own…
"Gratifying and surprising…A book about the texture and resonance of loss…Carrère covers a lot of ground with cool honesty and careful humanity."---Sally Singer, The New York Times, A Favorite Book of the Year "A beguiling writer…Graceful and important."---John Freeman, NPR"In Lives Other Than My Own, Emmanuel Carrère demonstrates that empathy can be the antidote to alienation, if we try for it. With the finely measured assurance of Chekhov, he achieves something altogether unexpected in modern literature: beatitude."---Gary Indiana, author of The Shanghai Gesture and Three Month Fever
"A powerful story of happiness wrenched from despair. Once the tempest has passed, words remain, and what words they are!"---Le Nouvel Observateur (France)
