“Jean Bruno Wladimir François de Paule Le Fèvre d’Ormesson was a French novelist. He was the author of forty books, the director of Le Figaro from 1974 to 1979, and the Dean of the Académie française.”
D’Ormesson passed away December 5, 2017. I am actually currently reading one of his books, Dieu, les affaires et nous. Several of his other books are on my reading list. His writing is unique, moving, and it has a way of lingering on the mind, even after you have finished the page.
A legend has departed, leaving us a great gift— his words. Philosopher, reporter, columnist and prolific letter writer, to stay with us forever. Because being a writer, makes you immortal.
