This 120e edition of the Goncourt prizes added a few regulations in order to avoid the scandal of last year. Recall that it was revealed that Camille Laurent had as a companion Francois Noudelmanna competing author. This same Camille Laurens, like others before her, also took the liberty of publishing a review about a book in the selection. In the future, it will be forbidden to criticize the books when they are in the running and the works of the spouses or relatives of the members of the jury will not be eligible.

While waiting for the rest, we wish each other beautiful readings, if?
