The French literary prize Prix Goncourt this year goes to the author Herve Le Tellier. The 63-year-old received France’s coveted literary award for “L’Anomalie”, as the jury announced on Monday in Paris. The book is about a unique event that turns the lives of hundreds of passengers on a flight from Paris to New York upside down.
The coveted Prix Goncourt is only endowed with a symbolic ten euros, but above all it boosts sales. It has been awarded since 1903. The Prix Renaudot, which was awarded at the same time, went to Marie-Helene Lafon for “Histoire du fils” (German: The story of the son). The 58-year-old tells the story of a child who was born to an unknown father.
