Christine Angot is one of France's most prominent and controversial authors, whose works include the notorious L’Inceste, which has now appeared in English translation. Her literary works have received prizes including the Prix France Culture in 2005 (for Les Désaxés and Une partie du cœur), the Prix Flore in 2006 (for Rendez-vous) and the Prix Sade in 2012 (for Une semaine de vacances), which she refused.
