Rouletabille Chez Krupp Gaston Leroux Bibliography

Gaston Leroux (May 6, 1868, Paris – April 15, 1927, Nice) was a French journalist, detective and novelist. In the English-speaking world, he is best known for writing The Phantom of the Opera (Le Fantôme de l'opéra, 1910) which has been made into several film and stage productions, such as The Phantom of the Opera, starring Lon Chaney and a novel by Susan Kay called "Phantom", based solely on his work.

 

Leroux went to school in Normandy and studied law in Paris, graduating in 1889. He lived wildly with millions of inherited francs until the money was gone. Then he began working as a court reporter and theater critic for L'Echo de Paris in 1890. His most important journalism came, however, when he began working as an international correspondent for the Paris newspaper Le Matin. In 1905 he was present at and covered the Russian Revolution. Another case he was present at involved the investigation and deep coverage of an ex-opera house in Paris.

 

Leroux left journalism in 1907 and began writing fiction, and in 1919 he formed his own film company, Cinéromans. He first wrote a mystery novel entitled Le Mystère de la chambre jaune (1908; The Mystery of the Yellow Room), starring the amateur detective Joseph Rouletabille. The Mystery of the Yellow Room is an important work in the history of detective fiction as it was the first "locked-room puzzle," which has become a staple in the genre. Leroux's contribution to French detective fiction is considered parallel to Edgar Allan Poe's in America and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's in the UK.

 

Leroux died in Nice on April 15, 1927 of a urinary tract infection.

 

Some of Leroux's works, in both French and English, can be downloaded from Project Gutenberg.
