The Prix Goncourt is a prize in French literature given by the Académie Goncourt to the author of "the best and most imaginative prose work of the year." Where there is an English editon, the English title is given. When there is no English translation available, the original French title is used. When the title is the same, or virtually so, in both English and French, just the year is given.
