David John Gascoigne

David Gascoigne is Honorary Senior Lecturer in French at the University of St Andrews, Scotland. His publications have centred on later twentieth-century French narrative, including books on Michel Tournier and on Georges Perec and ludic fiction. His retirement was honoured by colleagues and friends with a Festschrift (L. Milne and M. Orr (eds), Narratives of French Modernity: themes, forms and metamorphoses, Oxford: Peter Lang, 2011). His work since then has ranged in topic from Pascal Bruckner to Marie Nimier, and from Oulipian paratext to Dadaist poetry.
