Myriam Anissimov reading at the Folies d'Encre boosktore, Montreuil, June 2014 Myriam Anissimov (born 1943 in Sierre, Switzerland) is a French writer.

She is the author of several biographies, including of Primo Levi, ''Tragedy of an Optimist'' (Overlook Press) and Romain Gary, as well as many novels and a book for young adults.

Anissimov wrote the preface to the first French publication of ''Suite Francaise'', the publication of which led to Némirovsky's posthumous fame.
