    French playwright, screenwriter, and novelist Françoise Sagan (June 21, 1935 – September 24, 2004) was known for her first international best-selling novel Bonjour Tristesse (1954), written when she was 19 years old with the pseudonym Françoise Quoirez and made into a film in 1958. She also wrote Un Certain Sourire (1956), Aimez-vous Brahms? (1959), Les Merveilleux Nuages in (Wonderful Clouds; 1961), Un Profil perdu in (Lost Profile; 1974), De guerre lasse (Engagements of the Heart; 1985), and Un Sang d’aquarelle (Painting in Blood; 1987). Most of her novels feature young women protagonist involved sexually with older men. She's also written plays: Château en Suède (1960; Castle in Sweden) and L’Excès contraire (1987).

    Sagan produced and maintained the austere style of the French psychological novel. She married twice; her first husband Guy Schoeller, whom she divorced in June, 1960. followed with his marriage to Bob Westhoff, also ending in divorce in 1963. However, she managed a long-term relationship with Peggy Roche and had a male lover Bernard Frank, plus a rumored affair with French Playboy editor Annick Geille.

    On April 1957, Sagan had an accident that resulted in a coma for some time and later convicted of cocaine possession. She died at the age of 69 on pulmonary embolism in Honfleur, Calvados on September 2004. She had a son, Denis, whom in 2010 established the Prix Françoise Sagan. Francoise’s life was featured in a 2008 biographical film, directed by Diane Kurys in France, played by French actress Sylvie Testud.
