French journalist, literary critic, writer, essayist and screenwriter.

His imprisonment in a German stalag during the Second World War heavily influenced his writing during that period.

Gascar became a journalist after the end of the war. In 1953, after winning the Prix Goncourt for Les Bêtes, he decided to devote himself entirely to his literary work.

He wrote several biographies and studies of nature, taking a poetic and philosophical approach.

He won the Prix Roger Caillois in 1994.

He died 20 February 1997, Lons-le-Saunier.
