About the author (2020)

A French author and conceptor born in Paris in 1967, Stephane MOT thrives on strategy and innovation (ESSEC alumn, serial startup survivor) without ever disowning fiction, satire, and nonsense.

Author of ‘dragedies' (a collection of bittersweet going on pungent fictions), and of ‘La Ligue des Oublies' (The League of The Forgotten, a tribute to soccer legends who never existed), Stephane founded among other blogs SeoulVillage.com. 'Seoul Villages' is his first collection of fictions in English.

Stephane and Seoul have been haunting each other since 1991.

Auteur et concepteur né à Paris en 1967, Stéphane Mot privilégie les formats courts et décalés pour ses chroniques comme pour la fiction. Avant 'Seoul Villages', sa première collection consacrée à Séoul, il a concocté une série de bouchées au goût étranges ('dragédies') et un hommage aux légendes du football n'ayant pas eu la chance d'exister ('La Ligue des Oubliés'). Cet observateur de la société coréenne intervient dans de nombreux médias internationaux ainsi que dans son blog SeoulVillage.com, fondé en 2007.

Stéphane et Séoul se hantent mutuellement depuis 1991.
