Biography

François Bon was born in Luçon in 1953. His father was a mechanic and his mother a teacher. He studied engineering at Arts et Métiers ParisTech but did not graduate. After college, he worked in various factories, specialising in electron beam welding. He published his first novel in 1982 and, in 1984, became a full-time writer. As well as novels, he has written radio scripts, plays and films scripts. His website, le tiers livre, was one of the earliest French-language sites devoted to literature. He was a founder of remue.net. He has become very interested in the relationship between literature and the digital world and the future of the book.
