DesertBook - 2009
The Swedish academy, in awarding J.M.G. Le Cezio the 2008 Nobel Prize in Literature, praised Desert as Le Cleio's "definitive breakthrough as a novelist." Published in France in 1980, Desert received the Grand Prix Paul Morand from the Academie Francaise, was translated into twenty-three languages, and quickly proved to be a best-selling novel in many countries around the world.
