French writer and formal legal advisor to the government. In 1991 Françoise Chandernagor authored the report (she was Attorney-General) of the Council of State (the supreme court for administrative justice).
In 1993 she left the administration and abandoned her career as a civil servant to dedicate her time to writing.
Since 1981, when she published ‘The King’s Way’ several of her novels were translated in fifteen languages, and two of them were the object of television adaptations.
Françoise Chandernagor presides the Jean Giono Prize, and is currently the administrator of the Foundation of the Castle of Maintenon, Corporation of the readers of the World, and Century. She is member of the Académie Goncourt since June 1995.
An anecdote: Rumor has it that Françoise Chandernagor, during her big admission speech at ENA, answered the question of the jury: What difference do you make between a lover and a husband? with the clever answer: it's like... night and day!
