Synopsis

Stephanie Corinna Bille, a Swiss short-story writer, playwright, poet, and novelist and winner of the 1975 French Prix Concourt, is often considered the major contemporary Franco-Swiss woman writer. In The Transparent Girl and Other Stories Monika Giacoppe and Christiane Makward have assembled and translated a magnificent collection of Bille's work that exposes an English-speaking audience-many for the first time-to Bille's exotic, captivating, mystical, and sexually provocative stories.

Stephanie Corinna Bille (1912-1979) is an acclaimed Franco-Swiss writer. She is the recipient of the prestigious Goncourt award for the short story and the author of two longer stories ("La Demoiselle sauvage" and "Emerentia, 1713") that have been made into films. Monika Giacoppe is Assistant Professor of World and Comparative Literature at Ramapo College of New Jersey. Christiane P. Makward (D. Lit. Sorbonne) has been a Professor of French and Francophone Studies at The Pennsylvania State University for nearly thirty years. Besides Corinna Bille, her interests in contemporary literatures in French include Caribbean women's theatre and novel, and contemporary women writers generally. She has published several books, translations, and many articles in the field of feminist literary criticism.
