En tête-à-tête with Éric Vuillard

December 11th, 2018

The winner of 2017 Goncourt Prize and Co-op member Éric Vuillard browsed through our shelves and shared his thoughts on what makes literature beyond the fiction/non-fiction distinction. In this video, Éric talks about two books – Physiology of the Employee by Honoré de Balzac and The Fire Next Time by James Baldwin – to exemplify what makes great literature.

"Contrary to popular belief, literature is not about imagination but rather about how we relate to reality", says Vuillard.
