La littérature de territoire : écrire la province dans les romans contemporains français

Abstract : The growing interest of a portion of contemporary French literature in remote provincial territories is becoming an editorial phenomenon. On the basis of a narrower corpus, this work seeks to define the borders of a subgenre being developed by placing it in recent literary history and describing its place, at least the attempts to make a place for itself, in the editorial and literary field. Interviews with some of the editorial actors in this territorial literature, authors and publishers, allow us to identify sociological profiles and various differentiation strategies but also to observe similar paths and characteristics in their quest for singularity. Territory literature is emerging but seems condemned to this emerging status, limited by the logic of singularization of authors that prohibits the return of collective literary adventures known in the past. Remains a sub-genre with its own characteristics which once again describes a hitherto phantasmagoriated province. The public and the critics seem to be increasingly fond of his novels, as the editorial production and the sales successes prove, guaranteeing the subgenre's durability even if the sociology of its readers is not renewed.
