Nathalie Sarraute, a major figure in French modernism commonly associated with the Nouveau Roman, or New Novel, is not usually seen as a political writer. As she expressed in an interview with the actress Isabelle Huppert, she is feminist as a citizen but not as a writer, which we can take more broadly as a statement of a political engagement that stops with literature.
