JMG Le Clézio interview


The Guardian carried an interview with JMG Le Clézio on Saturday.

Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clézio was born in 1940, two months before France fell to Nazi Germany. Thinking the Germans would occupy Provence, his mother, Simone, drove with her two sons to Brittany. “As soon as we arrived, the Germans arrived, and sent us back.” The south was occupied by fascist Italy in 1942, then by Germany. “I was very hungry at the end of the war, begging for food from the Americans, who were giving away white bread and chocolate. That’s written in my memory.”
