Om forfatteren

JEAN GIONO was born in 1895 in Manosque, Provence, and lived there most of his life. He was sent to the front in early 1915, an experience he refused to repeat in the Second World War when he was briefly arrested for declaring himself a pacifist. For eighteen years he supported his parents, Jean-Antoine and Pauline, by working as a bank clerk before his first two novels were published, thanks to the generosity of Andre Gide, to critical acclaim. He went on to write thirty novels and numerous essays and stories. Placed in 1944 on the black list of national writers, Giono was later awarded the Prix Monegasque for his collective work. He died in October 1970.
