Born in 1965, Eric Reinhardt is the author of four previous novels and a freelance publisher of art books. He lives and works in Paris. He presents the acclaimed and controversial bestseller The Victoria System, his first novel to be translated into English. Complex, compelling and ambitiously structured, it is a daringly sensual story of an obsession. It was longlisted for the IMPAC Dublin Literary Award and shortlisted for the Prix Renaudot, the Prix Goncourt and the Grand Prix du roman de L’Academie française.
