Author Biography - Further Information
Thomas Boileau and Pierre Narcejac is the pseudonym used by two authors from France. Whilst not a huge output they are sought after and very collectable. Their best known work is probably The Living and the Dead as it was the basis of the movie adaptation for Vertigo. The books were all published in France initially. The only American book that I am aware of is the first novel which was published stateside in 1954 by Rinehart under the title The Woman Who Was No More. Three of the translators that I have to hand are Daphne Woodward, Geoffrey Sainsbury and Brian Rawson. The English first editions also benefit from some striking contemporary dustwrapper artwork. All of the British 1sts are regarded as uncommon, especially so in collectable condition, some are genuinely very rare books and are valued accordingly.
