Madeleine Monette

Madeleine Monette Brief Biography

Madeleine Monette
Madeleine Monette is a Canadian novelist, short story writer, and poet from Quebec. Born in Montreal, she has lived in New York City since 1979. After her first novel, Le Double suspect, won the Robert-Cliche Award in 1980, she devoted herself to writing novels and short stories that combine an intimate sense of reality with an acute social consciousness, revisiting the social novel and probing at close range the notion of "Americanity", creating works that are cultural multiplexers and whose geography tends to undo the very concept of "territory", physical or imaginary. In 2007, she turned to poetry as another way to explore our subjective and physical relationship to the present world, while keeping a close eye on social reality and the historical moment. Her poems, which channel the sensuality of her novelistic writings, reconsider and renew the art of the narrative, combining fiction and poetry in a singular way. Since the early 1980s, Monette also contributed to promote Quebec and francophone literature in the United States and Europe, and as far as New Caledonia in the South Pacific. She was received into the Acadmie des lettres du Qubec (Qubec Academy of Letters) in 2007.
