PARIS (AFP) - High-school biology teacher Alexis Jenni on Wednesday won France's top literary award, the Goncourt Prize, for his first novel, "L'art francais de la guerre" (The French Art of War). The prize was announced by the Goncourt panel of literary bigwigs at the chic Drouant restaurant in Paris. The adventure story, a reflection on the heritage of France's colonial history in Indochina and Algeria, beat stiff competition from authors including Haiti's Lyonel Trouillot. "This is a rare book by a writer who will leave his mark on this particular subject handled in this way," said the Goncourt jury's president.
