The Author’s Bookshelf: Luc Sante

Luc Sante was born in Belgium in 1954 and emigrated to the United States as a child. After attending Columbia University in fairly sporadic fashion, he worked at the Strand from 1976 to 1979. His books include Low Life, Evidence, The Factory of Facts, and Kill All Your Darlings, and he edited and translated Félix Fénéon's Novels in Three Lines.

His honors include a Whiting Writer's Award, an Award in Literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, an Infinity Award from the International Center of Photography, Guggenheim and Cullman Fellowships, and a Grammy, for album notes.

Sante teaches writing and the history of photography at Bard. He says: “I like nonfiction that has the intuitive daring and rolling cadences of poetry, fiction that has the thick description and illustrated sideshows of nonfiction, and poetry that has the narrative sweep and intrigue of fiction. I like writing best when you can't quite tell where the book should be shelved.”
