David Foenkinos (born 28 October 1974) is a French author and screenwriter. He studied literature and music in Paris. Today he is one of the most revered and beloved French writers. His novel La délicatesse is a bestseller in France. A film based on the book was released in December 2011, with Audrey Tautou as the main character.
Charlotte is David Foenkinos’s thirteenth novel. After winning the "Prix Renaudot", the French author received the "Goncourt des lycéens" (High School Students Goncourt Prize), also for Charlotte.
One of his other best-selling books, Les Souvenirs (2013), was adapted by Jean-Paul Rouve into a film which was released in January 2015. Will Charlotte have its own cinematographic adaptation as well? We look forward to it.
