Abstract

Recognized in Switzerland by numerous prizes, Anne-Claire Decorvet's fiction has yet to make its mark abroad. With the exception of her biographical novel, Un lieu sans raison, inspired by the life of Marguerite Sirvins, it is set predominantly in and around Geneva, explores family and social instability, insanity and psychiatric care in the twentieth century. This article explores some of the distinctive and characteristic features of her writing with a view towards introducing her work to new readers.
