About the author: Gatien de Courtilz de Sandras (1644- 1712) was a French novelist, journalist, pamphleteer and memorialist. His abundant output includes short stories, gallant letters, tales of historical love affairs ("Les Intrigues amoureuses de la Cour de France," 1684), historical and political works, biographies and semi-fictional "memoirs" (in the first person; his prefaces often indicate that the works were composed from papers found after the subject's death) of historical figures from the recent past (such as Colbert, the Marquis de Montbrun and M. de Rochefort). His memoir-novels ("Mémoires de M.L.C.D.R.," 1687; "Mémoires de M. d'Artagnan," 1700; "Mémoires de M. de B.;" 1711) describe the social and political world of Richelieu and Mazarin with a picaresque realism (spies, kidnappings, and political machinations predominate) and they were important precursors to both French picaresque novels and literary realism in the 18th century.
