„I open and I see, I apprehend, that which of me is not mine and being not (of) me address myself a catastrophied retort. A talk which addresses a 1928 photograph by Surrealist photographer, Claude Cahun, in accusation. With Genet on judgement, and Celan: unsplit.“
Nathalie Stephens (Nathanaël)writes l’entre-genre in English and French.She is the author of several books, including The Sorrow and the Fast of It (2007), L’injure (2004), and the essay of correspondence Absence Where As (Claude Cahun and the Unopened Book) (2009). Her book, …s’arrête? Je (2007) was awarded the Prix Alain-Grandbois in 2008. Carnet de désaccords (2009) is a finalist for the Prix Spirale-Éva-le-Grand. Je Nathanaël (2003) exists in English self-translation with BookThug (2006). Other work exists in Basque and Slovene, with book-length translations in Bulgarian (2007). In addition to translating herself, Stephens has translated Catherine Mavrikakis, Gail Scott, Bhanu Kapil and Édouard Glissant. She is, she thinks, in Chicago.
