The Goncourt Prize Winner has been announced!

Brigitte Giroud becomes the 13th writer to win the Goncourt Literary Prize.

According to the Guardian, the oldest and most important French literary prize called “Goncourt” was awarded to a writer on Thursday for the thirteenth time in the past 120 years.

Novelist and short story writer Brigitte Giroud, 56, has been announced as the winner of this year’s Kangaroo Literary Award for “Quick Life.”

Live Fast is a short autobiographical story in which Giroud recounts the chain of events that led to the death of her husband, Claude, in a motorcycle accident in 1999.

Giuliano da Empoli had the best chance of winning this award after Giro by writing The Wizard of the Kremlin. About 100,000 copies of “The Wizard of the Kremlin” have been sold since it was published six months ago.

Chloe Corman on “Almost Sister” and “Mackenzie Ursell” on “Brief About Human” are among the finalists for “Gencor 2022.”

The Prix Goncourt is the oldest and most prestigious French literary prize, the winner of which is announced in November of each year by a panel of 10 judges.

The Goncourt cash prize is only €10, but winning it guarantees the winner’s reputation and great sales of his book. Most award winners would rather frame the check they receive for that award than cash it.

Last year, Senegalese writer Mohamed Amboujar Sarr won the Goncourt Prize for “Man’s Most Secret Secret,” becoming the first writer from “Black Africa” ​​to win the Goncourt Prize. He received the most prestigious literary award in France.
