Biographical notes:

'Gyp' was the pseudonym of Sibylle de Mirabeau, later Comtesse de Martel, a French writer known for satirical writings denouncing the French Republic. Born into a noble family in Brittany, she began writing articles and humorous sketches and gradually progressed to novels and plays. A versatile, remarkably productive writer, her unapologetically right-wing, anarchist views were controversial, and the anti-Semitism that pervaded her life and works more so. She became a very public figure in French politics, and was the victim of several assassination attempts and a kidnapping.
