Castino, Didier


Didier Castino was born in 1966  and is a literature professor in Marseille. After the critically acclaimed, Après le silence (Liana Levi 2015, Prix du Premier Roman, Prix Eugène Dabit), the portrait of a working class France in the 70s and a prematurely deceased father, he wrote Rue Monsieur-le-Prince in 2017, in which he explores the 1986 student movement and the death of Malik Oussekine. With Les Avrils, he pursues a work in which intimacy and politics are masterfully intertwined.
