Antoine Volodine (2014)

Antoine Volodine (born 1950) is the pseudonym of a French writer. He initially was interested in the original Association des Écrivains et Artistes Révolutionnaires. His works often involve cataclysms and have scenes of interrogations.[1] He won the Grand Prix de l'Imaginaire in 1987. Des anges mineurs (trans. Minor Angels), one of his best-known works, won the Prix du Livre Inter and Prix Wepler in 2000. He won the Prix Médicis in 2014 for his latest novel, Terminus radieux.

Volodine writes under multiple heteronyms, including Lutz Bassmann, Manuela Draeger, and Elli Kronauer. He has also translated literary works from Russian into French, including such authors as Eduard Limonov, Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, Viktoriya Tokareva, Alexander Ikonnikov, and Maria Sudayeva (who may be another pseudonym of Volodine's).
