The author of more than 20 books of fiction and non-fiction, Pascal Bruckner is one of France's most prominent writers. He studied at the Universities of Paris I and Paris VII and at the École Pratique des Hautes Études. He then became maître de conférences at the Institut d'Études Politiques de Paris and for many years has been associated with the Nouvel Observateur. Writing in the vein of the "nouveaux philosophes," Pascal Bruckner has established himself as one of his country's most acute social critics. A number of Bruckner's books are available in English translation, including The Tears of the White Man (1986), The Temptation of Innocence (2000), The Tyranny of Guilt (2010), Perpetual Euphoria (2011), and The Paradox of Love (2012), and The Fanaticism of the Apocalypse (2013). One of his novels was the basis for Roman Polanski's film, Bitter Moon (2003).
