Auto-Fiction. Translated from the French by Béatrice Mousli. Recipient of the Prix Wepler Fondation La Poste and the Prix Pierre Simon Ethique et Réflexion, WE'RE NOT HERE TO DISAPPEAR begins with the portrait of a man suffering from Alzheimer's disease, and goes on to explore the loss of memory, language, and reason. This optimistic, desperate book—Rosenthal's seventh in as many years—confirms her talent and verbal inventiveness.
Paris-born novelist Olivia Rosenthal has published nine books since 1999, including WE'RE NOT HERE TO DISAPPEAR (Otis Books/Seismicity Editions, 2015).
