Louise L. Lambrichs (born May 2, 1952) is a French novelist and essayist.

Lambrichs was born into a family of writers in Boulogne-Billancourt, Hauts-de-Seine. Her father Georges Lambrichs (along with Jean Paulhan and Jérôme Lindon) was considered one of the greatest French-speaking editors of the second half of the 20th century. Her mother Gilberte Lambrichs who translated the works of Fritz Zorn and Thomas Bernhard wrote under the pseudonym Constance Delaunay.

Lambrichs, who studied philosophy, has published more than a dozen works of which probably the most famous are "Journal d'Hannah" and "Le Jeu du roman".

Along with Caroline Eliacheff (fr), she wrote an original scenario for Claude Chabrol's film "The Flower of Evil" (2003). Then Aruna Villiers directed the film À ton image based on her novel (2004).

In 2005 she published Nous ne verrons jamais Vukovar ("We are never going to see Vukovar"), an analysis of the wars in the former Yugoslavia based on a study of a book by Peter Handke and her own experiences in the field of psychoanalysis.
