About Us


Odéon Livre brings French-language literature to an American audience. While many of our featured works have been translated into English, we focus exclusively on texts’ native versions. Plots and characters can indeed be translated, but even the most faithful interpretation will lack the power and beauty of French.


Odéon Livre was founded by Ethan Safron, an American francophone and author of the Oui Love Books series. For more on Ethan, check out his personal blog.
