Hervé Le Tellier [ France ]

Hervé Le Tellier was born in 1957 in Paris and has been a member of the Oulipo group since 1992. His new novel »Assez parlé d'amour« (tr: That's Enough Talk About Love) is to be published shortly; the novel is just as the title says. His Oulipotic works are primarily short texts, fragments even, constructed around a 'contrainte', for example 'La chapelle Sextine' (2005, English: The Sistine  Chapel, to be published in 2010), which consists of seventy-eight short, erotic texts in the rhythm of the traditional poetic form, the sestina. The author teaches journalism at Paris universities. He lives in the city.
