Noëlle Revaz was born in Switzerland in 1968 and lives in Lausanne. Her first novel, translated as With the Animals (Dalkey Archive, 2012), was widely hailed in the US as a remarkable achievement. The original, Rapport aux bêtes (Gallimard, 2002) had won a number of literary prizes in Europe, was adapted for the stage and made into a film in France, Animal Heart (Coeur animal), 2009. Her short stories have been adapted for the stage, too. In addition to her fiction, she has written for the theatre and for the radio. Besides her work as a writer, she teaches creative writing at the Swiss Literature Institute at Biel/Bienne, where she lives.
