Le Figaro and the Académie Goncourt offer you an exceptional collection of 40 works that have won the most prestigious literary prize.
Le Figaro and the Académie Goncourt present an exceptional collection: “The best of the Goncourt Prize“. The jurors of the most famous literary prizes and Le Figaro chose the 40 best books to have won the prize since its creation in 1903. Result? Forty works to discover or rediscover such as The Roots of Heaven by Romain Gary (currently on sale at an introductory price of €3.90), The human condition by André Malraux (from March 24, €12.90) will then come the novels of Jean-Christophe Rufin, Marcel Proust, Didier Decoin, or even Maurice Genevoix, Erik Orsenna, Michel Houellebecq… A new book is published every two weeks, on Thursdays. Each is prefaced by a member of the Academy.

Le Figaro wanted the collection “The Best of the Goncourt Prize” to be commensurate with the texts published. From the artistic direction to the printing, including the composition (or the model) and the choice of typography, under the leadership of the industrial management teams of the Figaro, everything has been designed so that reading comfort is optimal, and the book a beautiful editorial object, whatever its pagination. These Goncourt prizes range from 192 pages (Patrick Modiano, Marguerite Duras, Paule Constant, Émile Ajar) to 640 for Marcel Proust, and even 704 for Simone de Beauvoir, the most voluminous.
The books in our collection all have a rounded edge, and their binding offers an opening and a pleasant grip, enhanced by the cardboard cover whose rigidity guarantees hold and longevity, while the 52 gram Holmen Book Creamy paper displays softness and suppleness. An elegant bookmark makes it possible to mark its page, a case receives and protects the book, for a long time.
