Éric Chevillard has received awards for several of his novels including La Nébuleuse du crabe in 1993, which won the Fénéon Prize for Literature. His books have been often classified under postmodern literature, playing on narration with fragmentation and paradox. He is known for his association with publishing house les Éditions de Minuit. His Prehistoric Times, translated by Alyson Waters, was published by Archipelago Books in 2012, and was a finalist of the Best Translated Book Award.
