Martin Page is a writer and editor (Monstrograph).

Born in 1975, he spent his youth in the southern suburbs of Paris. He lives in Nantes, in the district of Doulon.

His first novel, Comment je suis devenu stupide, was published in 2001. It was followed by La Libellule de ses huit ans and On s’habitue aux fins du monde, published by Le Dilettante. At Ramsay: De la pluie. At the Olivier publishing house: Peut-être une histoire d’amour, La disparition de Paris et sa renaissance en Afrique and La Mauvaise habitude d’être soi (with Quentin Faucompré), L’apiculture selon Samuel Becket.

In 2015, he created a publishing lab with Coline Pierré: monstrograph.
