Images of French novelist Françoise Sagan, from the mid-50s. Sagan is one of my style and attitude inspirations for Johnnie Watson in the 50s Femlock AU I’m planning, although she is much younger here than Johnnie will be in my story. (But look! she typed like Martin Freeman.)
When her novel Bonjour Tristesse came out in 1954, Sagan was called a “charming little monster” on the front page of Le Figaro.
