Marc Dugain

Marc Dugain was born in 1957 in Senegal, where his father was stationed at that time, eventually returning to France with his family at the age of 7. After receiving his diploma from l’Institut d’études politiques in Grenoble, Dugain worked in finance before becoming an entrepreneur in the sector of aeronautics. Before his first novel, Dugain had never written much besides the many letters he wrote over the years to his childhood friend, and now esteemed writer, Fred Vargas.

It was at the age of thirty-five that he began his literary career, in writing a book inspired by his grandfather, about soldiers wounded in World War I, called La Chambre des officiers (The Officers’ Ward). Since his first novel, Dugain has written several other novels and received a number of literary prizes, such as le prix des libraires, le prix des Deux-Magots and le prix Roger-Nimier.

Marc Dugain has also delved into the world of film and directing in recent years. He has directed film adaptatiops of his books such as La Malédiction d’Edgar (The Curse of Edgar) and Une exécution ordinaire.
