Robert Merle

Robert Merle (born 1908) is a French writer.

Merle has written in many styles and won the Prix Goncourt for his novel Week-end à Zuydcoote[?]. He has also written a 12 book series of historical novels, Fortune de France[?]. Recreating 16th and 17th century France through the eyes of a fictive Protestant doctor turned spy, he goes so far as to write it in the period's French making it virtually untranslatable.
