French writer.

In 1990 Rouaud published the bestseller "Les Champs d’honneur" ("Fields of Glory"), for which he was awarded the Prix Goncourt. The autobiographical family novel describes life in the French provinces at the outbreak of World War I. The work signals the brilliant prelude to a five-volume cycle, which mirrors twentieth-century France in the fate of three generations of the author’s family.

Alongside his literary career, Rouaud is also active as a chansonnier and playwright. He received the Grand Prix Littéraire de Saint-Emilion Pomerol-Fronsac for his novel, "L’imitation du Bonheur" ("The imitation of happiness").
