Andrei Makine

Andrei Makine was born in Krasnoyarsk in Siberia in 1957, but has lived in France since 1987. While initially sleeping rough in Paris he wrote his first novel, A HERO'S DAUGHTER, which was eventually published in 1990 after Makine had to pretend it had been translated from the Russian. With his fourth novel, LE TESTAMENT FRANCAIS, he became the first author to win both of France's top literary prizes, the Prix Goncourt and Prix Medicis. It has gone on to sell over a million copies and be translated into 28 languages. Since then Andrei Makine has written five novels, including A LIFE'S MUSIC, which won the Grand Prix RTL-Lire. In 2016, he was elected to the Académie Française.
