The World's Marco Werman tells us about the poetry and life of the late Andree Chedid, born in Egypt and most recently of Paris, France. Chedid, who won the 1979 Goncourt prize for literature for "Time And The Body," was born in Cairo of Lebanese Christian descent and moved to Paris in 1946. Her son Louis Chedid is a well-known French singer and grandson Matthieu "M" Chedid is a pop star. Video: Matthieu "M" Chedid performs tribute
