Henri Troyat RIP

Henri Troyat passed away on Sunday, march 4. Le Monde and Le Figaro each have a decent obituary and Le Monde point to the INA site where an interview from 1976 with the author is freely available for a limited time. I didn’t realise he was still alive, he’s name goes back for so long…

I knew Troyat especially because of his biographies. My grandfather had some of them and I must have them somewhere in a box. Time to dig them up…
