Roger Martin you Gard

Roger Martin you Gard (* 23. March 1881 in the Neuilly sur Seine with Paris; † 22. August 1958 in Bellême, Département Orne) was a French writer. In the year 1937 it was distinguished with the Nobelpreis for literature.

Roger Martin you Gard is author of large time-historical family novels. After his death the author successful during lifetimes came nearly into oblivion. Afterwards its way of writing and its topic selection appeared too conventional. A French television adaptation of its novel cycle Les Thibaults made a small Martin you Gard Renaissance for 2003 possible.

Martin you Gard was friendly with André Gide, which dedicated also its Hauptwerk the Falschmünzer to him.
