Descripción

Unlock the more straightforward side of Other Lives But Mine with this concise and insightful summary and analysis!

This engaging summary presents an analysis of Other Lives But Mine by Emmanuel Carrère, a semiautobiographical novel about death, mourning and writing. Through an unnamed narrator, Carrère tells the story of two Juliettes: the first is the 4-year-old daughter of a couple whose life is snatched away by a tsunami, while the second is the younger sister of the narrator’s wife, who succumbs to cancer. Profoundly affected by both of these tragedies, the narrator decides to put their stories into writing in order to preserve their memory. This was published in the form of Other Lives But Mine in 2009 and garnered an impressive amount of praise, eventually being made into a film in 2011. Other Lives But Mine is not the only book by Emmanuel Carrère to receive a cinema adaptation, however: the author himself directed the film version of his novel The Mustache. Carrère was born in 1957. He is the son of historian and academic Hélène Carrère d'Encausse.

Emmanuel Carrère was born in Paris in 1957. He is a writer, screenwriter and director. The son of the historian and academic Hélène Carrère d’Encausse, a Russia specialist, he began his career as a film critic before moving on to fiction with his first novel, The Jaguar’s Friend (1983). He has been published since then by Éditions P.O.L and received the Prix Femina in 1995 for Class Trip. After The Adversary, which follows the story of the real-life murderer Jean-Claude Romand, Carrère put fiction aside to focus on writing documentaries and stories, such as A Russian Novel (2007) and Other Lives But Mine (2009). After writing for various direct-to-TV-films, he stepped behind the camera to direct the film adaptation of his novel The Mustache in 2005.
