About the Author: Roland Dorgelès

Roland Dorgelès (15 June 1885 – 18 March 1973) was a French novelist and a member of the Académie Goncourt.

Born in Amiens, Somme, under the name Roland Lecavelé (he adopted the pen name Dorgelès to commemorate visits to the spa town of Argelès), he spent his childhood in Paris.

A prolific author, he is most renowned for the Prix Femina-winning Wooden crosses ("Les croix de bois"), a moving study of World War I, in which he served. It was published in 1919 (in English in 1921).

Dorgelès served as a juror with Florence Meyer Blumenthal in awarding the Prix Blumenthal, a grant given between 1919-1954 to painters, sculptors, decorators, engravers, writers, and musicians.
