Florence Noiville


Florence Noiville (1961) is a French journalist and writer. After a brief career in finances, Noiville resolutely turned toward writing. She became a journalist and literary critic for French newspaper Le Monde, where she has worked since 1994 and, at the same time, began writing fiction. She is the author of a dozen books for children and young adults, and published a biography of Nobel Prize-winning American author Isaac Bashevis Singer, for which she received a 2004 Biography Award. Her first novel, La Donation (Stock) was published in 2007. In 2009, Noiville wrote J'ai fait HEC et je m'en excuse ("I went to business school and I'm sorry", Stock), a short text, half-essay, half-personal narrative, about capitalism and its excesses. Her books are translated into eleven languages.

Since 2007, Florence Noiville has hosted a literary show on French television, as well as a weekly radio segment on paperback books. In 2007-2008, she was a judge for the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize organized by The Independent and the British Council in London.
