Blas de Roblès Jean-Marie

Born in 1954, Jean-Marie Blas de Roblès was a lecturer in philosophy at universities in Brazil, China and Italy and, finally, for the Alliance Française in Taiwan; he also has an interest in archaeology, has been a member of the French Archaeological Mission to Libya and edits a series of books on archaeology, which includes several of his own.
His first literary publication was a volume of short stories in 1982, followed by two novels (L’impudeur des choses, 1987; Le rituel des dunes, 1989), after which he turned to writing full time, while travelling widely. His magnum opus, Là où les tigres sont chez eux took ten years to write and almost as long to find a publisher who would publish it without insisting he to shorten it by 400 pages.
