Renodo Literary Prize received by French screenwriter and writer David Fonkinos Automatic translate
PARIS. This year, the renowned French screenwriter and writer David Fonkinos was awarded the prestigious Renodo Literary Prize. This decision was made by the jury in Paris. The author received a prestigious award for his novel Charlotte.
The genre of the book by Fonkinos, published by the Gallimar publishing house, is biographical: the novel tells about the tragic fate of Charlotte Salomon, a German artist of Jewish origin. From 1940 to 1942 she created more than 1.3 thousand paintings, the artist painted with gouache in the style of expressionism. In 1943, after the occupation of French Nice by German troops, Salomon was arrested at the age of 26 and deported to the Auschwitz concentration camp, where she was killed almost immediately. Charlotte’s work until the 1960s was not known to almost anyone.
The Renodo Prize was created by ten literary critics and journalists in 1926. It is believed that it was established after the dissatisfaction with the results of the Gonkurov Prize. According to the rules of the Renodo Prize, it cannot be awarded to the author if in the past five years his works have been awarded at least one literary prize. Over the years, the Renaudo Prize laureates were Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clézio (Nobel Prize winner in literature), Marcel Aime, Louis Aragon and Louis Ferdinand Céline.
