★ ICONIC PORTRAITS ★ by Arnaud Baumann
François Cavanna, a French author and satirical newspaper editor, significantly influenced the establishment and triumph of Hara-Kiri and Charlie Hebdo. He ventured into diverse literary genres, including reportage, satire, essays, novels, autobiography, and humor, also translating works by notable cartoonists. Born in Nogent-sur-Marne, Cavanna, despite being raised in France, portrayed his life among Italian immigrants in Les Ritals and L’œil du lapin. Starting various part-time jobs at 16, including delivering letters and selling produce, he entered journalism in 1945 at Libération.
Innovatively responding to the ban on Hara-Kiri magazine in 1969, Cavanna proposed renaming it, giving birth to Charlie Hebdo. Shifting to autobiographical writing, Les Ritals explored his childhood, while Les Russkoffs and later Maria delved into his World War II experiences in German-occupied France. Notably, Les Russkoffs, published in 1979, earned him the Prix Interallié. In Bête et méchant and Les yeux plus grands que le ventre, he humorously recounted his experiences with Hara-Kiri and Charlie Hebdo. Lune de miel, his final work during his lifetime, addressed his struggle with Parkinson’s disease.
