Prix des Deux Magots

award

The Prix des Deux Magots is a major French literary prize. It is presented to new works, and is generally awarded to works that are more off-beat and less conventional than those that receive the more mainstream Prix Goncourt. The name derives from the extant Parisian café "Les Deux Magots", which began as a drapery store in 1813, taking its name from a popular play of the time, "The two figurines of China". It housed a wine merchant in the 19th century, and was refurbished in 1914 into a café.
