Marc Dugain was born in 1957 in Senegal, but his family moved back to France when he was 7. While still a child, Marc accompanied his grandfather on a visit to La maison des Gueules cassées, a chateau that housed soldiers from World War I who had been victims of facial mutilations. This became the subject of Dugain’s first novel, La Chambre des officiers (1998) (The Officer’s Ward, 2003), a best seller that won some twenty literary prizes including the prestigious Prix des Libraires, Prix des Deux-Magots and Prix Roger Nimier.
