 Joseph Joffo

Joseph Joffo (born 1931) is a French author who is perhaps best known for his memoirs Un sac de billes (A Bag of Marbles), which has been translated into eighteen languages.

Joffo has also written the book Anna et son orchestre (Anna and Her Orchestra), which tells the story of Joseph's mother, from the time she is 11 years old to the time she meets Joseph Joffo's father in Paris.

His novel Baby-foot, published in 1977, follows on from Un sac de billes and describes his life in Paris following WWII and his discovery of American values.

La Vieille dame de Djerba, published in 1984, was written after Joffo met a woman called Liza at a synagogue in Djerba, an island off the coast of Tunisia. He was amazed to discover, after assuming she was a beggar and offering her money, that she knew the name of his mother and grandmother.Joffo has also written the book Anna et son orchestre (Anna and Her Orchestra), which tells the story of Joseph's mother, from the time she is 11 years old to the time she meets Joseph Joffo's father in Paris.
