Über den Autor

Maurice Leblanc (1864-1941) was a French novelist, primarily known for creating the character Arsène Lupin, a charming and ingenious gentleman thief who features in a series of detective stories. Leblanc's 'LUPIN - The Adventures of Gentleman Thief' remains his most celebrated work, where the audacious exploits of Lupin are elegantly chronicled, enthralling readers since its early twentieth century origins. A contemporary of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Leblanc's literary style is often seen as the Gallic counterpart to Sherlock Holmes, not least because of an actual narrative cross-over in 'Sherlock Holmes Arrives Too Late', where Lupin is pitted against the British sleuth, albeit under a pseudonym due to copyright issues. Maurice Leblanc was born in Rouen, France, and began his career as a journalist before turning to fiction. His writing is marked by a sophisticated wit, complex plotting, and a richly imagined Belle Époque France, which provides a lavish backdrop to Lupin's adventures. Maurice Leblanc was awarded the Legion of Honor, France's highest decoration for civil merits, for his contributions to French literature. His works continue to be celebrated for their innovation in the crime genre, and for the immortal character of Lupin, who has inspired numerous adaptations in various media. The legacy of his storytelling continues to shape the gentleman thief trope in modern narratives.
