Meet the Author

Geboren am 20.5.1799 in Tours, gestorben am 18.8.1850 in Paris.

Geboren als Sohn eines Rechtsanwalts, verbrachte er eine freudlose Kindheit; die ersten vier Jahre unter der Obhut einer Amme, vom 7. bis 14. Jahr in einer strengen Klosterschule. Bis 1816 lebte er in einem Internat in Paris. Danach studierte er Jura an der Sorbonne und arbeitete nebenbei als Gehilfe in einem Anwaltsbüro. Nach Abschluß der ersten juristischen Prüfung weigerte er sich, Notar zu werden. Unter verschiedenen Pseudonymen verfaßte er von 1822 bis 1825 über 20 Kolportageromane, von denen er kärglich lebte.

Mit 23 lernte er die 45jährige Mme. de Berry kennen, die für lange Zeit seine mütterliche Geliebte wurde. Gewagte Spekulationen als Verleger und Drucker führten ihn 1827 zum Bankrott mit riesigen Schulden, die ihn lebenslang belasteten. Nach dem ersten literarischen Erfolg 1829 wurde er zum beliebten und berühmten Autor.
