Gaboriau, Emile (1835-1873), an eminent French novelist, was born at Saujon. In his early literary career he wrote for the Parisian papers, and his first great success was L'Affaire Lerouge, which appeared as a feuilleton of Le Pays. His tales are of the police and detective type, and display great ingenuity of plot. Two of his works, L'Argent des Autres, and La Degringolade, were published posthumously.
