Marie-Pierre Gracedieu Éditrice chez Gallimard
Marie-Pierre Gracedieu has led, at only 40,
an already impressive career, alongside the biggest international authors. She got her start at Stock, as head of La Cosmopolite, until then dedicated to legends such as Stefan Zweig and Virginia Woolf. On arrival, she opens the collection up to contemporary authors, amongst which Sofi Oksanen and her thriller Purge. In 2012, Antoine Gallimard appoints her as head of the anglosaxon section. Curious, sharp, tireless and passionate, she has since edited Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Taiye Selasi, Hisham Mater, Jessie Burton, Jonathan Coe, Arundathi Roy and Omar Robert Hamilton’s first novel The City Always Wins, published in French this month in collaboration with the FIFDH.
