Espaces d'instants - Maryse Renard

Twelve novels grouped into four chapters. Each containing a story relating to childhood, then another, more complex, "something has taken place" followed by a third. The inner monologue of woman who stands still for just a moment.  Inspired by a true story: those regarding childhood - a place, a fleeting image, a fresh perspective, diverting - each seeks to capture a moment: past, present or future that all seem inseparable.  A moment that could only be what it was in that place, in this "scene".

Only availble in French

Maryse Mahmoudian-Renard, Swiss resident since 1975, accustomed to subtle variations in dialict since her childhood in a small village in Champagne, France, turned later to linguistics which led to a reflection on language, teaching and research in both France and Switzerland. This path led her to gain confidence and freedom from language and take the daunting step to publish her personal writings. It was Le Cadratin, created by Jean-Renaud Dagon, that facilitated this step and ten titles have already been published.

Other publications have appeared in journals including: Ecriture, l'Etabli de Traumfabrik,, N47/28, Bacchanales, Alsatian Review of Literature. Collaboration with Femmes en Suisse by des comptes-rendus d'ouvrages and at the Centre d'études du Pays sézannais (Marne France), which publishes articles of historical interest. She collaborated with painters to produce several Livres Pauvres at the request of Daniel Leuwers.

An exhibition of her books and works of the seven accompanying painters with readings and music took place at the Estrée in Ropraz in 2016.
