Welcome to the official website of Barnabé LAYE !

Barnabé LAYE, poet and novelist, is considered to be one of the important voices of the current generation of Black writers in French language. Hospital physician, he juggled his two vocations. Now, he is devoting himself entirely to writing.

His work is remarkable for its style and the singular music that runs through the lines. As if rhythms and assonances invited us to share the flavor of words and speech. Some of his books are translated into English, Spanish and Brazilian.

Some of the works of Barnabé LAYE are subject to academic work.
