Paris 2015: Lucien Bodard, Cimetière du Montparnasse #11

'Lucien BODARD
1914 – 1998
Born in China (where his father was a French diplomat) and nicknamed 'Lulu le Chinois', Lucien Bodard began his career as a journalist in 1944. Many of his novels have China as the central focus of interest. His semi-autobiographical Monsieur le Consul won the Interallié prize in 1973, and he won the Goncourt for Anne Marie in 1981.
