Émile Brami

Émile Brami (born 19 April 1950) is a French writer and bookseller of Tunisian origin.[1] He was born in Jendouba, formerly known as Souk El Arba, in Tunisia. He moved to France in 1964 and settled in Paris. He is a specialist on Louis-Ferdinand Celine, the 20th-century writer, and published a biography in 2003.

Brami established and ran a bookshop "D'un livre l'autre" in Paris that deals mainly with Celine. He is of Jewish and Berber origin. His works often refer back to his childhood and his Tunisian Jewish background. In 2001, he won the Prix Bernard Palissy for his first novel Histoire de la Poupee. He also won the Prix Mediterranee for his novel Le Manteau de la vierge in 2007.
