Poetry. Translated from the French by Amy Hollowell. "This book should be read as a viaticum, a guide, planting along the road of life what Henri Michaux called 'corner posts.' The author recalls 'viaticum books' (from the Bible to Gertrude Stein, Jean Giono), and his vows—'gathering of provisions'—call for the publication of such books."—Thierry Roger
Christophe Lamiot Enos, born in Beaumont-le-Roger, lived his childhood and adolescence in Pont-Audemer and now lives in Paris after fourteen years spent in the United States of America teaching French literature. On January 1, 1981, he was the victim of an extremely serious automobile accident which today imposes on him a disabled status and a rigorous discipline of writing and research in the human sciences. Two essays published in 1997 and 1999 ("Water on water," Rodopi; "Literature and hospital," Sciences in Situation) announce several stories in poems, including Apples and oranges, Immediately Elke, Albany, 1985-1981 and Viges (Flammarion), stories in which, already, English and French mingle. Still other stories, at Contre-allées, Passage d'écres, Rehauts or L'Amandier also mark out his route. In 2013, an all-English book, The Sun Brings (Corrupt Press), was published in the United Kingdom. Christophe Lamiot Enos' writing has caught the attention of commentators for, among other things, its attention to detail, formal elaboration, musicality and work on memory. Father of two children, he holds a post of lecturer at the University of Rouen, for which he has created and now directs a collection of contemporary American poetry at the Presses Universitaires de Rouen and Le Havre, entitled "To." He is part of the ERIAC laboratory as a writer and Americanist and regularly contributes to several journals. His works appear in anthologies, both in France and abroad.
