‘She doesn’t even have a wiki page,’ wailed Paris hacks when President Hollande today named Audrey Azoulay as the new minister of culture, replacing Fleur Pellerin.
Azoulay, 43, is a backroom Elysee official, daughter of a close advisor to the King of Morocco.
She has a degree in business studies from the University of Lancaster. No track record in the politics of French culture. Could be really interesting.
