A selection of the best short work by France's greatest living nonfiction writer Over the course of his career, Emmanuel CarrEre has reinvented nonfiction writing. In a search for truth in all its guises, he dispenses with the rules of genre. For him, no form is out of reach: Theology, historiography, reportage, and memoir-among many others-are fused under the pressure of an inimitable combination of passion, curiosity, and intellect that has made CarrEre one of our most distinctive and important literary voices today. 97,196 Words introduces CarrEre's shorter work to an English-language audience. Featuring more than thirty extraordinary texts written over an illustrious twenty-five-year period of CarrEre's creative life, the book shows a remarkable mind at work. Spanning continents, histories, and personal relationships, 97,196 Words considers the divides between truth, reality, and our shared humanity, exploring remarkable events and eccentric lives, including CarrEre's own.
