Biography

Christine Angot (born 7 February 1959) is a French writer, novelist and playwright.

Life

Born Pierrette Marie-Clotilde Schwartz (Schwartz being her mother's name) in Châteauroux, Indre, she is perhaps best known for her 1999 novel L'Inceste (Incest) which recounts an incestuous relationship with her father.

It is a subject which appears in several of her previous books, but it is unclear whether these works are autofiction and the events described true. Angot herself describes her work – a metafiction on society's fundamental prohibition of incest and her own writings on the subject – as a performative (cf Quitter la ville).
