As a writer: In addition to his distinguished political and diplomatic career, Lopès has earned distinction as a literary author. Perhaps his most acclaimed work is the satirical novel Le Pleurer-rire ("The Laughing Cry", 1982). Other works include the short-story collection Tribaliques ("Tribaliks, " 1971), as well as the novels La Nouvelle romance (1975) and Sans tam-tam (1977). Tribaliques received the Grand Prix Littéraire de l'afrique noire in 1972, and in 1993 Lopès received the Grand prix de la francophonie for his entire body of work. (Wikipedia)
