Henri Fauconnier

Biography

French writer.

In 1905 he left for Malaysia. He was a very successful planter and became quite rich. But in 1918 he felt that a page in his life had turned: material success was assured, and it had only been a means to an end. Keeping an eye on the plantation, he arranged to delegate his powers so that he might finally devote himself to writing. To ensure a stable income, he accepted a position as director of several companies of tropical plantations.

In 1930 he published Malaysia which proved very popular and highly respected and won the Prix Goncourt.

He died 14 April 1973, Paris.
