At Alliance Française
Born in Liège in 1971, Nicolas Ancion studied philology at the University of Liège. At twenty-four, he published his first novel, Bleu ciel trop bleu, and critics were very intrigued by his absurd and cruel poetry. Many other novels followed, for adults as for youth, among them Quatrième étage, crowned by Price High Schoolers in 2001.
While his words travel the world, Nicolas travels too. He lives alternately in Montreal, Brussels, Madrid, Liège and Aude, finally, in a small village near Carcassonne, where he settled in 2007. This is where he now devotes his time to writing and animating creative writing activities.
