Author Biography - Julien Gracq
Julien Gracq (the pseudonym of Louis Poirier), was born in 1910 and became a teacher of History and Geography at a Paris lycee. In 1939 he met Andre Brelon and though influenced by the Surrealists he established his own style of expressive and rich prose. He resolutely refuses to be part of the French literary scene over which he has had so much influence, having refused the Prix Goncourt in 1951.
