Boston University Creative Writing

Boston University Creative Writing-39
The book was written over eight years and is an amazingly intimate and exhaustive narrative.Why do you think these women were willing to open up to you?

Despite being on book tour, she took the time to speak with us about the book. I’d read Gay Talese’s and was impressed with the immersive nature of the book but it was written from a very male perspective, so I decided it might make sense to write about female desire, from a female perspective. I would make lists of tenuous things to do: Posting signs in the morning, across nearly every state in the country.

This week, we’re excited to feature Jean Charbonneau, an alumnus of our program from 1998!

Jean was born in Montreal, and studied creative writing at Harvard Extension School and the University of Southern Mississippi before getting his MA in creative writing from BU.

He lived in the US (Boston, Hattiesburg, Detroit, and Baltimore) for nearly twenty years before returning to Montréal in 2011.

While Jean has published stories in both French and English, all of his novels were written in his native language, French.
