Pierre Senges

Biography

Pierre Senges was born in Romans-sur-Isère in 1968. He was first interested in music, particularly jazz, playing saxophone and then guitar. He even gave a few concerts before turning to writing. He studied sociology at the University of Grenoble but spent more time in the library than studying. His writing is very much influenced by Georg Christoph Lichtenberg, using numbered sequences. He is also concerned with the play between truth and untruth as well as using erudite sources.
