Akira Mizubayashi

Invited to the 2018 Books & Music Festival

Akira Mizubayashi was born in 1951. After studying at the National University of Foreign Languages and Civilizations in Tokyo (UNALCET), he left for France in 1973 and took a teacher training course at the University of Paul Valéry in Montpellier to become a French teacher (foreign language). He returned to Tokyo in 1976, did a master's degree in modern literature, and in 1979 returned to France as a student at the Ecole Normale Supérieure. Since 1983, he has been teaching French in Tokyo, successively at Meiji University, at UNALCET and, since 2006, at Sophia University. His first book in French, Une langue venue d'ailleurs (Gallimard, collection "L'un et l'autre") was published in January 2011. He received the Asia Literary Prize from the Association of French-speaking Writers (ADELF) and the Prix du Rayonnement de la langue et de la littérature françaises from the French Academy.

Her novel A Love of a Thousand Years is shortlisted for the 2018 Books & Music Prize.
