Ysiaka Anam

Ysiaka Anam is an author, and lives in the South-West of France. A French woman of African descent, questions of storytelling constitute a guiding theme of her career, where literature intertwines with different practices (anthropology of space, ethno-psychoanalysis, sound experiments, etc.). Her first novel, Et ma langue se mit à danser (“And my tongue started to dance”), tackles questions of migration and family heritage from an intimate and collective angle.
