Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clézio is a French author and professor. Deemed one of the greatest living French-language writers, he was awarded the 2008 Nobel Prize in Literature as an "author of poetic adventure and explorer of a humanity beyond and below the reigning civilization".
His oeuvre covers an extensive body of novels, short stories and essays, exploring deep themes such as language, humanity, nature and travel.
Le Clézio's works have been translated into many languages and introduced to China since 1983. Major publishing houses and bookstores in China keep acquiring his present and upcoming books.
After his first visit to China in 1967, the French writer's bond with Chinese cultural circles has continued. Last month, Le Clézio attended the 10th Fu Lei Translation Prize as the guest of honor and offered his insights on Chinese literature.
