And the Boncourt Award 2018 is awarded to David Diop for "Brother of Soul"



It's like being on Drouant. The decor is sumptuous, solemn moment. Maialen Sanchez, Director of the Biarritz Library and Juryn's Boncourt Judge, decide: It is David Diop for "Soul Brother" and not Nicolas Mathieu for "Their Children After Them" who got the most of the votes.

It was 4 or 5 years in a row that we made the same choice … What's fun for us is to mimic the jury in Goncourt at the highest.

The Boncourt jury, composed of members of the reading club in the Biarritz media library, meets the same day as the Goncourt jury. Its task is to read the fifteen novels for a month to compete for the famous prize before voting.
