40 years of literature

Since our beginnings as a Swiss independent publishing house in 1975, we have added to our catalogue innovative writers who create new worlds and strong atmospheres. It comprises different collections:

The "Domaine français" includes francophone Swiss writers from the "patrimoine" as well as the new generation, who stimulate and enrich the discussion about contemporary literature. Among them, the bestselling titles by Nicolas Bouvier (Le Dehors et le Dedans) and Agota Kristof (L’Analphabète) stand out: they have been translated into more than twenty languages. These great figures are followed by promising young talents such as Elisa Shua Dusapin, Arthur Brügger, Max Lobe and Aude Seigne.

The "Domaine alémanique" represents in their French translations the most prominent voices of German speaking Swiss writers such as Matthias Zschokke, Lukas Bärfuss, Robert Walser and Friedrich Dürrenmatt.

The "Collection Ecrits d’ailleurs" presents works by anglophone writers from the Commonwealth and the diaspora whose distinct voices reflect on their often mixed identities and conflictual existence in a globalised world. We thus publish Helene Cooper, Olive Senior, Richard Wagamese, Ivan Vladislavic and many more in French.

"Zoé poche" is a paperback collection of some of the greatest Swiss authors, and the 100 tiny booklets of "Minizoé" allow readers to discover Swiss literature in no more than 64 pages.
