Pierre Senges is the author of fourteen books and over sixty plays for radio. His original fictions often unfold in the margins of other texts as commentaries, inversions, and variations on existing texts and historical figures. He is the recipient of prizes for Ruines-de-Rome (2002) and Veuves au maquillage (2000), as well as for his radio work. His most recent book Achab (séquelles) won the Prix Wepler in 2015. Two translations of Senges into English are forthcoming: Fragments of Lichtenberg(Dalkey Archive Press) and The Major Refutation (Contra Mundum Press).
