France's Literary Awards

A number of important literary prizes have been announced in France this month. The Prix Goncourt for 2014 has been won by Lydie Salvayre for her novel Pas Pleurer; a number of her previous books in both English and French are listed in our catalog. A rival prize, the Renaudot, has been won by another widely translated author, David Foenkinos, best known here for Delicacy, which was also made into a film starring Audrey Tautou.
