Emmanuel Carrère's new book 97,196 Words introduces his shorter works to an English-language audience, featuring more than thirty essays over a twenty-five year period, covering everything from American heroin addicts to the writing of In Cold Blood to the philosophy of Philip K. Dick.

“As a writer, Carrère is straight berserk; as a storyteller he is so freakishly talented, so unassuming in grace and power, that you only realize the hold he’s got on you when you attempt to pull away.”   -Junot Diaz

Emmanuel Carrère, novelist, filmmaker, journalist, and biographer, is the award-winning internationally renowned author of The Adversary (a New York Times Notable Book), Lives Other Than My Own, My Life As A Russian Novel, Class Trip, and The Mustache. Carrère lives in Paris.
