Franck Bouysse was born in France in 1965 and taught biology before devoting himself to writing. His novels Grossir le ciel (2014), Plateau (2016) and Glaise (2017) found great commercial and critical success and have won several literary prizes. In January 2019, his novel Né d’aucune femme (Of No Woman Born) was published. It won the Prix des Libraires, the Prix Psychologie Magazine, the Grand Prix des Lectrices Elle and the Prix Babelio, selling over 100,000 copies. It will be published in the UK by Weidenfeld & Nicolson in October 2021, in conjunction with US publisher Other Press. Bouysse divides his time between Limoges and a tiny village in Corrèze.
