Chocolat Novel by Joanne Harris (Farsi Edition)
Chocolat is a 1999 novel by Joanne Harris. It tells the story of Vianne Rocher, a young single mother, who arrives in the French village of Lansquenet-sous-Tannes at the beginning of Lent with her six-year-old daughter, Anouk.
Joanne Michèle Sylvie Harris (born 3 July 1964) is an English-French author, best known for her novel Chocolat (1999), which was adapted the following year for the film Chocolat. Harris was born in Barnsley, Yorkshire, to an English father and a French mother. Both of her parents were teachers of modern languages and literature at a local grammar school. Her first language was French, which caused divisions between her English family, where nobody spoke French, and her French family, where nobody spoke English. Both families had turbulent histories and a tradition of strong women, kitchen gardening, storytelling, folklore and cookery. Harris began writing at an early age. She was strongly influenced by Grimms’ Fairy Tales and Charles Perrault’s work, as well as local folklore and Norse mythology. She was educated at Wakefield Girls’ High School, Barnsley Sixth Form College, and St Catharine’s College, Cambridge, where she studied modern and mediaeval languages. After a single, unsuccessful year as an accountant, which she describes as “like being trapped in a Terry Gilliam movie”, she trained as a teacher at Sheffield University, and for fifteen years she taught modern languages, mostly at Leeds Grammar School, a boys’ independent school in Yorkshire. She also taught at Sheffield University, lecturing on aspects of French literature and film. During this period she worked on a number of book projects; The Evil Seed, Sleep, Pale Sister and Chocolat were published whilst she was still teaching.
