Goncourt Prize Awarded to French-Moroccan Writer Leila Slimani
The Prix Goncourt (Goncourt Prize) was awarded, on Thursday in Paris, to French-Moroccan writer Leila Slimani for her novel “Chanson douce”.
The novel tells the story of the murder of two young children by their baby-sitter.
“The story can be read like a never-ending book about the domination and the social misery,” according to the jury of this Prize.
The 2015 Goncourt Prize was given to Mathis Enard for his novel “Boussole”.
The Prix Goncourt is an award in French literature, given by the académie Goncourt to the author of “the best and most imaginative prose work of the year”.
