Philippe Claudel is a French writer and film director. He directed the 2008 film I’ve Loved You So Long (Il y a longtemps que je t’aime) which won the 2009 BAFTA for the best film not in English.

His best-known work to date is the novel Les Âmes grises (Grey Souls), which won the Prix Renaudot in France, was shortlisted for the American Gumshoe Award, and won Sweden’s Martin Beck Award. He won the 2003 Prix Goncourt de la Nouvelle for Les petites mécaniques, and the 2010 Independent Foreign Fiction Prize, for Brodeck’s Report, his hallucinatory story – almost a dark fairy-tale in which Kafka meets the Grimms – of an uneasy homecoming after wrenching tragedy.

In addition to his writing and directing, Philippe is a Professor of Literature at the University of Nancy.
