The award is designed to perpetuate the memory of Malraux (1901-1976) via a novel recently which is distinguished by its political commitment. Fencing has been done with the prize thanks to his latest book, The monarch of the shadows (Literature Random House), in which he recounts the story of his great-uncle, Manuel Mena, who died when she participated in the battle of the Ebro, in the Civil War, being second lieutenant of the Phalanx and which would later be remembered by his family as a hero.

Their investigations bring together all of the literary genres in the service of a search for truth; once more, no doubt be on the scene to board the best the reader in the complexity of the Story,” said the writer and critic Pierre Assouline, a member of the jury of the Prix Goncourt since 2012.
