About the Author

Jacques Médecin was born in Nice, studied law in Paris and worked for several years as a journalist. He was elected mayor of the city of Nice in 1966 where he served for 24 years. In the 1980s he became the target of corruption allegations, following an exposé of judicial and police wrongdoing by the novelist, Graham Greene in his celebrated pamphlet J’Accuse. Médecin fled France in 1990, but was extradited from Uruguay back to France in 1993, convicted and jailed for one year. In spite of this he remained hugely popular with many of the people of Nice for making the city cosmopolitan and trendy in the 60s. He died in Uruguay in 2011 at the age of 70.
