Yves Laplace

Literary Tour in China

Invited by the Swiss Embassy in China and Pro Helvetia, Yves Laplace will be visiting Beijing from March 20 to 25, 2016, to participate in the Bookworm Literary Festival and the China World Poetry Day, sharing his thoughts and experience with the Chinese public. 

Born in Geneva in 1958, Yves Laplace is a Swiss author active in the French-speaking literary circle. Passionate about history, theater and poetry, gifted with photography and doing well as a football referee, he is popularly known as a playwright and novelist, with more than 20 novels and dramatic works published. Skilled at creating unconventional figures in his literary works, such as juvenile offenders, psychotics, assassins, persecutors and martyrs, he depicts a real world from their perspectives.

His latest novel, Plaine des héros, was inspired by George Oltramare, a successful Swiss writer and a controversial politician who launched the fascist movement in the 1930s. With Hero’s Prairie, Yves Laplace won the Alice Rivaz Prize in 2015 and the Swiss Literary Prize in 2016.
