High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Jean- Marie Gustave Le
Clzio (born 13 April 1940), usually identified as J. M. G. Le
Clzio, is a French author, professor, and Nobel laureate. The
author of over forty works, he was awarded the 1963 Prix Renaudot
for his novel Le Procs-Verbal. Le Clzio's mother was born in the
French Riviera city of Nice, his father on the island of Mauritius
(which was a British possession, but his father was ethnically
French). Both his father's and his mother's ancestors were
originally from Morbihan on the west coast of Brittany. His
paternal ancestor Franois Alexis Le Clzio fled France in 1798 and
settled with his wife and daughter on the island of Mauritius,
which was then a French colony but would soon pass into British
hands. The French colonists were allowed to maintain their French
customs and use of the French language. Although the author Le
Clzio has never lived in Mauritius for more than a few months at a
time, he regards himself both as a Frenchman and a Mauritian.
