Jean d’Ormesson (1925-2017) is a famous modern French author who uses his biography as a basis of his literary works. In the novels Jean’s Way (1959) and the Holiday in Tears (2005) there is the particular kind of a biographical narrative that is typical for this writer. D’Ormesson as a novel writer is not researched in Russia at all. That is why he appears as a matter of grave consideration in order to influence his popularisation by observing both of his works written in different periods of his literary life. Besides, it is possible to examine these self-texts by using an interdisciplinary approach. As for the overall goal, we should mark the main principles of a biographical story that help to create the individual author's style of writing. Firstly, it is reasonable to track the development of a biographical narrative from the early work to the old one, and then to mark the correlation of particular types of it that results in the formation of the synthetical genre.
