About Rene Goscinny

Jean-Jacques Sempe (b. 1932). Jean-Jacques Sempe is one of the most successful and best-loved cartoonists and illustrators in the world. He has published numerous collections of his work in his native France and thirty other countries since 1962, and still regularly contributes to magazines such as the New Yorker, Paris Match and Figaro Litteraire. Expelled from school for bad behaviour, Sempe took application exams for jobs at the French Post Office, a bank, and the French Railways, and failed them all. He enjoyed a variety of jobs, from travelling toothpaste salesman to summer camp worker, before winning an art prize in 1952 given to encourage young amateur artists to turn professional. Sempe also enjoys iconic status with generations of children (and adults) around the world, thanks to his collaboration with writer Rene Goscinny on a classic series of books describing the exploits of a little schoolboy called Nicholas. Author's Residence: Paris, France Rene Goscinny (1926 - 1977) Rene Goscinny is the world-famous writer and creator, along with Albert Uderzo, of the adventures of Asterix the Gaul. Born in Paris, Goscinny lived in Buenos Aires and New York before returning to France in the 1950s where he met Jean-Jacques Sempe. They collaborated on picture strips and then stories about Nicholas, the popular French schoolboy. An internationally successful children's author who also won awards for his animated cartoons, Goscinny died in 1977. Anthea Bell was awarded the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize and the Helen and Kurt Wolff Prize (USA) in 2002 for her translation of W.G. Sebald's Austerlitz. Her many works of translation from French and German (for which she has received several other awards) include the Nicholas books and, with Derek Hockridge, the entire Asterix the Gaul saga by Rene Goscinny and Albert Uderzo.
