French Writer Nicolas Mathieu Awarded Coveted Goncourt Prize for Literature

PARIS – French author Nicolas Mathieu was awarded on Wednesday the prestigious Goncourt literary prize for his second novel, which follows the life of a group of adolescents over the span of four summers in the 1990s.

Mathieu, born in 1978 in the town of Epinal in eastern France, published “Leurs enfants apres eux” (“The children who came after them”) in August 2018.

“He is an author who belongs to the tradition of the Goncourt Prize for being a new and young writer and for having written a social, contemporary book that speaks of French youth, which is rare in France,” said the president of the jury, writer Bernard Pivot, at the ceremony that takes place annually at the Drouant restaurant in Paris.

Mathieu’s first novel, “Aux animaux la guerre” (2014), won several prizes and has been adapted into a TV series.

Meanwhile, French author Valerie Manteau won the coveted Renaudot prize for her novel “Le sillon.”
