The son of a bookseller, he spent most of his life around books.
His father's bookstore was called the Librairie de France and from
this name Jacques Anatole Franois Thibault took his nom-de plume.
Anatole France studied at the Collge Stanislaus and after
graduation he helped his father by working at his bookstore. After
several years he secured the position of a cataloguer at
Bacheline-Deflorenne and at Lemerre, and in 1876 he was appointed a
librarian for the French Senate. Ironic, skeptical, he was
considered in his day the ideal French man of letters. He was
elected to the French Academy in 1896 and was awarded the Nobel
Prize for Literature in 1921.
