Tanguy Viel is a French author born in 1973. His novels, acclaimed by critics and public, contain numerous cinematographic references (among which Mankiewicz and Hithcock) and play with established codes such as noir crime novels – i.e. The Absolute Perfection of Crime (New Press, 2003) and Beyond Suspicion (New Press, 2008) – or the American novel genre as in his last novel published in France in 2013.
He is coming to Manchester for this Talk and Q&A moderated by Isabelle Vanderschelden, Senior Lecturer in French in MMU. He will speak about his inspirations within the English-speaking world as well as how Medias other than literature, cinema in particular, influence his writing.
Hitchcock’s The Lady Vanishes (1938), specially selected by Tanguy Viel for this occasion, will be screened after the talk.
In French with English translation.
