Françoise Mallet-Joris Critical Essays


(Contemporary Literary Criticism)

Mallet-Joris, Françoise 1930–

Mallet-Joris is a Belgian-born novelist, poet, short story writer, and editor now residing in France. Her first novel, Le Rempart des béguines, drew critical comparisons to the work of Françoise Sagan, largely because of its theme of lesbianism. Mallet-Joris's conversion to Catholicism is considered a major influence on her work. (See also Contemporary Authors, Vols. 65-68.)
