Biography

His biological father, Maurice Maman, was of Moroccan and Jewish origin and was a gynecology student when he met his mother. The ultra-Catholic family of his mother, Monique Charbrerie, was opposed to their marriage. The young Eric was raised without his father. When he was 9, his mother married Michael Fottorino, a physiotherapist. It’s at this time that he took the name of Eric Fottorino. It was only years later that he managed to contact his biological father.

In 1984, after studies at the Faculty of Law at the University of La Rochelle and then at the Institut d'études politiques de Paris, Eric Fottorino started as a freelance reporter for Libération and La Tribune de l’économie.

He joined the daily newspaper Le Monde in 1986, initially as a news desk editor, tracking records of incoming source material, eventually moving on to work with agricultural and African source material. He then became a reporter (1995-1997) before becoming editor-in-chief in 1998, then a chroniqueur (a journalist who writes as a specialist in a particular domain) in 2003.

« Mon père s'est tué d'une balle dans la bouche le 11 mars 2008. Il avait soixante-dix ans passés. J'ai calculé qu'il m'avait adopté trente-huit ans plus tôt, un jour enneigé de février 1970. Toutes ces années, nous nous sommes aimés jusque dans nos différences. Il m'a donné son nom, m'a transmis sa joie de vivre, ses histoires de soleil, beaucoup de sa force et aussi une longue nostalgie de sa Tunisie natale. En exerçant son métier de kinésithérapeute, il travaillait "à l'ancienne", ne s'exprimait qu'avec les mains, au besoin par le regard. Il était courageux, volontaire, mais secret : il préféra toujours le silence aux paroles, y compris à l'instant ultime où s'affirma sa liberté, sans explication. "Ce sont les mots qu'ils n'ont pas dits qui font les morts si lourds dans leur cercueil", écrivit un jour Montherlant. Mais il me laissa quand même mes mots à moi, son fils vivant, et ces quelques pages pour lui dire combien je reste encore avec lui. »
