Her books have been translated into thirty-six languages. The mother of two children, she lives and writes just outside Paris.

Reviews

"Too often the best European literature doesn't reach this island; here we have a little consolation" * Waterstone's Books Quarterly * "An absorbing tale... a gripping story that gallops along with un-put-downable speed" * Mslexia * "Despite an awkward start, it makes an uncomplicated, easily digestible, cheering read: so it's perhaps unsurprising that it became the best-selling French novel of 2008, moving over half a million copies and being translated into 32 languages" -- James Urquhart * Independent * "It is a confident author who works with a large cast of characters, and in many instances - notably the children - Gavalda nails it" -- Lee Randall * The Scotsman * "Gavalda's touching writing makes what could have been a melancholy text into a beautifully insightful novel." -- Eve Middleton * Living France *
