Leroux, Gaston

▪ French writer
born May 6, 1868, Paris, Fr.
died April 15/16, 1927, Nice

      French novelist, best known for his Le Fantôme de l'opéra (1910; The Phantom of the Opera), which later became famous in various film and stage renditions.

      After leaving school, Leroux worked as a clerk in a law office and, in his free time, began writing essays and short stories. By 1890 he had become a full-time journalist, and from 1894 to 1906 he sailed the world as a correspondent, reporting back to Paris various adventures in which he took part, notably during the Russian Revolution of 1905. In the early 1900s he began writing novels, his first success being Le Mystère de la chambre jaune (1907; The Mystery of the Yellow Room), starring the amateur detective Joseph Rouletabille. A number of sequels followed, none quite so successful.

 In 1910 The Phantom of the Opera appeared serially (before publication as a novel) and received only moderate sales and somewhat poor reviews. The melodrama of the hideous recluse abducting a beautiful young woman in a Paris opera house did not achieve international celebrity until the American actor Lon Chaney (Chaney, Lon) created the title role in the silent-film version of 1925. Andrew Lloyd Webber (Lloyd Webber, Andrew, Baron Lloyd-Webber of Sydmonton)'s musical The Phantom of the Opera (1986) brought Leroux's novel renewed fame.

      Leroux published several other novels and a few plays but, except among mystery aficionados, never achieved wide fame as a writer of horror and crime stories.
