ZOUNDS - Part II
We asked French novelist François Bon if he thought globalis(z)ation was having an impact on literature:
"I'm not very fond of political concepts, they're of no use to me in my [literary] work. I would much rather like to know if literature is having some sort of impact on globalisation" (translated by Andrew Gallix).
François Bon, born in 1953, emerged as one of the most promising young French novelists in the 1980s. His novels are peopled with outcasts (Le crime de Buzon, Editions de Minuit 1986) whose wasted lives (Sortie d'usine, Editions de Minuit 1982) take place against a backdrop of industrial decay (Temps machine, Editions Verdier 1993). His latest work is Paysage fer (Verdier 2000).
