Article

François Mauriac was a French novelist, essayist, poet, playwright and journalist. He was born in Bordeaux, France. He is best known for depicting trenchant psychological dramas and Christian characters struggling with a modern world. His widowed mother raised him with a stern, Catholic austerity that profoundly marked his literary works. His stories are typically set in his native Bordeaux and the Landes department in the southwest of France.
