Cournut, Bérengère


In her previous books, Bérengère Cournut has focused on exploring dreamlike lands where water and earth merge (L’Écorcobaliseur, Attila, 2008), where the plain gives birth to sea-lions and foxes (Nanoushkaïa, L’Oie de Cravan, 2009) and where ice is nipped by the heat of the desert (Wendy Ratherfight, L’Oie de Cravan, 2013). After seven years’ extended research into the Inuit people, their history and their lifestyle, she has published her fifth novel, Of Stone and Bone, written with a naturalist’s precision and a literary sensitivity recognized by the press and her readers.
