Writer, storyteller, singer, professor of Francophone studies at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, Ancelet is very interested in the structure of words and ideas. Overall, he’s participated in the production of articles, books, festivals, concerts, recordings, exhibits and documentaries. Ancelet writes poems, plays, songs and stories, all informed by the spoken French of Louisiana.

Le Trou dans le mur: fabliaux cadiens (writing as Jean Arceneaux)

Voilà un ouvrage qui risque d'être qualifié de livre le plus drôle de l'année! Carnavalesque, moqueur et espiègle, Le trou dans le mur rassemble des contes déguisés en fabliaux et qui nous plongent au coeur de la vie rurale et paysanne des bayous de la Louisiane. Jean Arceneaux est incontestablement l'un des meilleurs conteurs de la francophonie!

This may be the funniest book of the year! Carnivalesque, mocking and playful, Le Trou dans le mur collects stories disguised as fables that plunge us into the heart of the rural, peasant life on the bayous of Louisiana. Jean Arceneaux is undoubtedly one of the best storytellers of the Francophonie!
