Reading is both a virtue and duty.



The editor invites authors she considers to be good readers. She agrees with Nabokov that a good reader, a major reader, an active and creative reader, is a re-reader. She knows her writers and they know her, even when they have not yet met. They have read each other, or believe themselves to have done so. They are flirtatious, ruffling pages. She likes those who do not hesitate to buy the books she publishes, but under certain circumstances will make excuses for those who do not. She promises to do her best. The best is reading.


‘Je veux un travail élégant et érudit, avec un aspect modeste et pourtant agréable à contempler. Je veux un contenu léger et néanmoins sérieux’.


An interview with the Editor by Valérie Toubas et Daniel Guionnet © Point contemporain  is published here.
