Ingrid Astier


Ingrid Astier lives in Paris and in her imagination. One day, she will live between Polynesia, Yeu’s island and Connemara. The beginnings? In a wild cherry tree, to invent worlds with her brother. Then comes the Prize of the Young Writer (Mercure de France 1999) and the Black Series. With “Quai des enfers” (2010), winner of four prizes, including the Paul Féval Grand Prize of the “Société des Gens de Lettres”, she becomes the godmother of the “River Brigade”. Then comes “Angle Mort” (2013) and “Haute Voltige” (2017), a romantic novel, feverish and epic that reconnects with the vein of the novel of adventures. Her book “Le Petit éloge de la nuit” (2014) is on tour in theater, directed by Gérald Garutti, with Pierre Richard.
