French professor of philosophy and writer. Eliette’s father is also a philosophy professor specialized in Judaism. Eliette writes mostly about theological thrillers, the Jewish Orthodox community and the role of the women.
Her first book, Qumran, was released in 1996 after three years of research in Israël and the USA, and has been translated into eighteen languages. Her second title, L'Or et la cendre, details the historical and mysterious murder of a Berlin theologian. Murder also figures high in her 1998 work on the philosophical origins of homicide entitled Petite Métaphysique du meurtre. Her next novel, La Répudiée, a finalist for the Grand Prix du roman de l'Académie française and for the Prix Fémina, was the inspiration for Amos Gitai's film Kadosh. To research this book, Abécassis spent six months in the very orthodox Mea Shearim section of Jerusalem.
