French writer Romain Gary

Original caption: Romain Gary (1914-1980) - original surname Kacew, also wrote as Emile Ajar. Lithua-born French writer, who won the Critics Prize with his first work. L'EDUCATION EUROPEENNE (1945, Forest of Anger). This modern variation of the traditional novel of young man's coming of age, bought Gary immediate acclaim. The novel was later revised and reissued in English as Nothing Important Ever Dies (1960). Its hero is a 14-year-old boy who joins the Resistance in Poland under German occupation. Gary wrote his works both in French and in English; the French are considered better. LA DANSE DE GENGIS COHN (1967) was a tragi-comic novel about the ghost of a Jewish stand-up comedian who takes possession of his Nazi executioner. Roots of Heaven (1956), was set in Africa. The story of the inhuman aspects of progress and greed won the Prix Goncourt and was adapted into screen in 1958
