More information

...   Mégret Christian (11 November 1904, Vincennes – 1987), was a 20th-century French journalist and novelist, winner of the Prix Femina in 1957.


Life
Mégret Christian began his career as a colonial administrator in Togo, which inspired his first novel Anthropophages ('Cannibals') which appeared in 1934. He became a journalist at Jour in 1933 and then at Carrefour from 1945. He led a parallel career as a novelist, and in 1957 was awarded the Prix Femina for his work Le Carrefour des solitudes. His lovers included Princess Ghislaine de Polignac, whose intimate knowledge of the relationship of Baron de Redé and Arturo Lopez enabled Mégret to pen Danaë, a roman à clef based on the pair.
