Claire de Chandeneux

Summary: Louise Lucienne Emma Bérenger, known as Claire de Chandeneux, born in Crest (Drôme) on November 17, 1836 and died in Vincennes (Seine) on October 6, 1881, is a French woman of letters and novelist, married successively to two soldiers, the captain of Prébaron, then Commandant Bailly, she is the author of around thirty novels based on provincial military life. A member of the Société des gens de lettres, she founded two reviews, Paris Littéraire and Paris Charme, two years before her death at the age of 45. Barbey d'Aurevilly, who classified her pejoratively among the bas-blues, saw in she a "novelist of little adventures" and an "innocent machine gun of novels" which he described as "Ponson-Terrail-woman, short-lived, and in very small change". Léon Bloy also made fun of the "honest novels" of this author who had his hour of popularity.
