Keywords: Nothomb’s females | stereotypes | misogyny | puberty

In all novels by Belgian novelist Amélie Nothomb, the presence of feminine features is strongly emphasized and it is above all the impact of their impuberous bodies’ beauty, almost asexuated, which is underlined; joliesse, term often used by the novelist is exclusively feminine. Body description plays a major role in this novelist’s imagination, often in a misogynic way. Amélie Nothomb seems to more a woman writer than a feminist writer.
