It was a while ago but i think nobody mention it ??!!
Three Powerful Women, by French-Senegalese author Marie NDiaye
After Obama, the French go further and choose a black woman for the price.
I never heard of her but i shall try to get it, not belonging to the forked tongues who love bitching about the Goncourt.
I actually quite like their choices in general.
And there is an article

She seem very happy which is a blessing among the pintched assed intellectual.
