Alina Reyes (born Aline Patricia Nardone on 9 February 1956) is a French writer, best known for her literary treatment of eroticism.


She was born at Bruges, Gironde. Originally a freelance journalist, she devoted herself to fiction after a stay in Montreal. Reyes acquired notoriety with the success of her first novel, The Butcher, which was translated into numerous languages and adapted for the theatre; like many of her subsequent novels and essays, it showed a concern with contemporary eroticism and how to treat it in literary fiction.

She now splits her time between Paris and the Pyrenees.
