Not One Day begins with a maxim: "Not one day without a woman." What follows is an intimate, erotic, and sometimes bitter recounting of loves and lovers past, breathtakingly written, exploring the interplay between memory, fantasy, and desire

"For life is too short to submit to reading poorly written books and sleeping with women one does not love." Anne Garréta, author of the groundbreaking novel Sphinx (Deep Vellum, 2015), is a member of the renowned Oulipo literary group. Not One Day won the Prix Medicis in 2002, recognizing Garreta as an author "whose fame does not yet match their talent."

Guests who would like to attend should read the book in advance and come prepared to participate in the discussion. 

The discussion in English will be moderated by Isabelle David.
